North Korea: South Korea

What recent assessment he has made of the military situation on the Korean peninsula.

Answered on

Tensions on the Korean peninsula are lower than for some time.

We look forward to the summit between President Trump and Kim Jong-Un and hope that it results in an agreement that brings about complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

I urge Kim Jong-Un to heed the clear message that it is only through a change of course that he can realise the security and prosperity that North Korea claims to seek.
