South Korean president criticizes his successor for threatening DPRK

South Korean president criticizes his successor for threatening DPRK

Seoul, Apr 27 (Prensa Latina) South Korean President Moon Jae-in declared today that it was "inappropriate as a leader of a nation" for his successor, Yoon Suk-yeol, to threaten the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) with a "pre-emptive attack."

It should take into account that a single word can make or break a talk or increase tensions. It is probably because the president-elect has no experience in dealing with the DPRK or in diplomacy, he argued.

In an exclusive interview about his five years in office, Moon added that “someday, the new government will have to reestablish talks” with the neighboring nation.

During the presidential campaign in January, Yoon suggested that a “pre-emptive strike” against the DPRK might be necessary in response to its missile tests.

Candidate mode and president mode should be different. He needs to move into president mode soon, Moon advised.

Although the goals have not yet been achieved, his peace initiative on the Korean Peninsula cannot be criticized, he said.

In this regard, he recalled that “there was not a single military conflict” with the DPRK during the liberal administrations, while several military confrontations occurred during the conservative era.

However, progressives are labeled as incompetent in security matters, he said.

Moon’s term comes to an end on May 9, and he will attend Yoon’s inauguration ceremony on May 10th.
