United Nations panel calls for revising Japan-S. Korea 'comfort women' deal

Moon is a liberal who advocates a more conciliatory approach to North Korea compared with his conservative predecessor.

However, it's time that Washington, Seoul and Tokyo realize that Beijing is willing to live with a Pyongyang that is armed with the capability to carry out nuclear strikes far beyond its shores. Why? Trump replied that South Korea is a "not just good ally but great ally" and promised to invite Moon to his country soon.

Suga refused to confirm whether Moon told Abe that south Korea's public has difficulty accepting a 2015 agreement and Japan's compensation over the wartime sexual abuse of South Korean "comfort women" by the Japanese military.

Should Beijing change its mind and conclude that a nuclear strike-capable North Korea is intolerable and against its interests, it has an option that would raise prospects for both changing Pyongyang's behavior and attaining peace in the region: becoming the North's security guarantor. It has also been working to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the United States, presenting Trump with perhaps his most pressing security issue.

The U.S. and North Korea aren't now involved in any diplomacy. Products originating from North Korea would also be prohibited from entering the United States, according to the legislation.

"In South Korea, what defines you as a conservative or progressive candidate comes down to your policy position on foreign policy", James Kim, an global relations expert at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies in Seoul, told Sputnik. "I would like to closely cooperate with the president to achieve the denuclearisation of North Korea", Abe told Moon.

Trump lawyers: Documents show no undisclosed Russian income
While Trump's lawyers acknowledge that such income from Russian sources is "likely", previous reporting has all-but confirmed it. The letter doesn't vouch for any of Trump's personal federal tax returns that predate the past decade.

Moon said, "The South Korea-U.S. alliance is the foundation of our diplomatic and security policy, and will continue to be so", adding he appreciates that President Trump has prioritized deterring North Korea's provocations on his security agenda.

Chinese President Xi Jinping called Moon to congratulate him on his election at noon, and the two had a 40-minute conversation in which they agreed to improve bilateral relations at a time of tensions over the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (Thaad) battery in Korea.

(CNN) - North Korean prosecutors Friday demanded the extradition of those they say plotted to assassinate leader Kim Jong Un, including South Korea's outgoing spy chief and unnamed "masterminds" in the US Central Intelligence Agency.

"There was no nuclear test in April but it does not mean that North Korea will not conduct one in May".

Moon called for "dialogue along with sanctions and pressure" on the North, Yoon said, and - echoing the United States' line - suggested that Beijing should do more to tame Pyongyang.

South Korean President-elect Moon Jae-in will probably be unable to prevent the deployment of the US THAAD system in his country despite his expressed opposition to it.

What impact will S Korea's expanded missile defence system have?
