La Corea del Sud farà ogni sforzo per creare un ambiente favorevole per la ripresa dei negoziati sulla denuclearizzazione della Corea del Nord. Lo ha detto il ministro degli Esteri sudcoreano Kang Kyung-Wha parlando di fronte al Parlamento. “Desideriamo rafforzare l’impegno per creare le condizioni per la ripresa del dialogo. Ed in quest’ottica eserciteremo pressioni su Cina e Russia che sono i Paesi che più possono influenzare Pyongyang” ha detto il ministro facendo eco al presidente Moon Jae-in sostenitore della linea del dialogo da accompagnare se al regime internazionale delle sanzioni.A giugno la Cina si era fatta carica di un’iniziativa, definita Double Freeze che comporterebbe la cessazione dei test da parte della Corea del Nord a fronte dello stop, contestuale, delle esercitazioni militari Usa-Corea del Sud contro cui però si è opposta Washington. Pyongyang che si è ritirata dal 2009 dagli accordi internazionali sul nucleare, non si è ancora espressa sulla proposta di mediazione.

South Korea will make every effort to create an environment for the resumption of the negotiations on denuclearization of the North, South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said on Thursday.

China, Japan, North Korea, Russia, South Korea, and the United States have been holding the so-called six-party talks on ending Pyongyang’s nuclear program after its withdrawal from the Non-Proliferation Treaty in 2003. In 2009, North Korea pulled out of the process saying it would resume its nuclear weapons development.

“We will beef up our leading role to generate an environment in which denuclearization talks can resume. In this process, we will actively push to induce the influence that China and Russia have over the North,” Kang said during a parliamentary session, as quoted by the Yonhap news agency.

Kang also reiterated the position initially voiced by South Korean President Moon Jae-in that the dialogue was an important measure of settling the North Korean issues alongside the international sanctions regime.

The tensions around North Korea and its nuclear program have been high recently due to the repeated nuclear and weapons tests carried out in violation of the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions. As a response measure, the UNSC has introduced multiple sanctions against Pyongyang aimed at hampering the development of the North Korean nuclear weapons.

In June, China initiated a road map for the settlement of North Korean crisis, the so-called double freeze plan, which provides for the simultaneous cessation of North Korea’s nuclear activity and the US-South Korean military exercises. The initiative has been supported by Russia but rejected by the United States. North Korea has yet to issue a response to the proposal.
