North Korea urges South Korea to immediately accept its offer for military talks

North Korea urged South Korea Friday to accept its offer to hold military talks in its latest charm offensive toward Seoul after spiking tensions with its missile and nuclear weapons program.

North Korea’s National Defense Commission (NDC) called on South Korea to immediately accept the dialogue proposal made by the North’s leader Kim Jong-un at the country’s recently-concluded party congress.

“South Korea should respond to our proposal for the talks without delay in a bid to end the two Koreas’ animosity and confrontation and restore trust,” showed the NDC’s “open letter” carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

It also called on Seoul to join moves by the North to carry out “audacious and practical” measures for national unity.

Citing the need to ease military tension, the North’s leader proposed military talks with South Korea at the congress by the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) which concluded its four-day run on May 9.

Earlier, South Korea’s unification ministry rejected the North’s offer as a propaganda ploy which lacks sincerity, calling on Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons program.

Seoul urged Pyongyang to choose the path toward denuclearization if it hopes to bring peace and rapprochement to the divided peninsula.

Inter-Korean relations have fallen to one of the lowest points following North Korea’s January nuclear test and long-range rocket launch in February.

In March, the U.N. Security Council slapped its toughest sanctions to date against the communist country that defied warnings issued by the international community.

North Korea pushes South Korea to accept its dialogue proposal

 

North Korea again urged South Korea to accept its proposal for military talks Saturday in its latest charm offensive toward Seoul.

In a statement carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), a ranking official from the country’s ruling Workers’ Party called on the Seoul government to accept the dialogue proposal made by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at the recently concluded party congress.

“If South Korea is willing to improve its relations with the North, it should stop pursuing ulterior motives and come forward to have sincere talks (with North Korea),” Kim Ki-nam, a vice chairman of the Workers’ Party, said in the released statement.

Kim also repeated the North’s call on Washington to abandon what it calls a hostile U.S. policy toward Pyongyang, calling it “anachronistic.”

The statement came one day after North Korea’s National Defense Commission (NDC) pressured the South to respond to the dialogue proposal in an open letter also carried by KCNA.

Citing a need to ease military tension on the Korean peninsula, the North Korean leader proposed holding military talks with South Korea at the party congress that concluded its four-day run on May 9.

South Korea’s unification ministry has rejected the offer as a propaganda ploy that lacks sincerity, while instead urging Pyongyang to first give up its nuclear ambitions.

Inter-Korean relations dipped to their lowest ebb after the communist North conducted its latest and fourth nuclear test in January, followed by its launch of a long-range rocket in February.

Seoul has consistently stressed that Pyongyang must first denuclearize if it hopes to bring peace and rapprochement to the divided peninsula.

The two Koreas technically remain at war as the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice agreement, not a peace treaty. (Yonhap)

Comparativos de audiência devem levar outros aspectos em consideração

"Velho Chico" está entrando mais tarde do que o normal

“Velho Chico” está entrando mais tarde do que o normal

A Globo tem feito, discretamente, mudanças em alguns horários, desagradando uns e contrariando a outros, mas que devem atender estratégias da sua programação. Com toda certeza, se isto está acontecendo, não é de graça e nem para prejudicar quem quer que seja.

Resta saber quais serão os resultados práticos de tudo.

Hoje, por exemplo, verifica-se que a novela das 9, que em outros tempos foi das 8, está chegando perto das 10, porque os acontecimentos políticos em cartaz têm estendido a duração do “Jornal Nacional”. Nada mais compreensível.

Mas como se adotou como norma elaborar comparativos de audiência, naquilo que diz respeito às novelas, este é um dado, diante dessa nova situação, que também precisará ser sempre considerado porque a variação de horário tem forte influência no número de ligados.

Este é um aspecto que até aqui nunca foi levado a sério.

Donald Trump says he will continue to defend South Korea, but wants Seoul to pay up

(ATTN: FIXES typo in para 5)

By Chang Jae-soon

WASHINGTON, May 20 (Yonhap) — U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Friday he will continue to defend South Korea, but wants the Asian ally to pay more for American defense support.

Speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Trump also said that he’s willing to hold talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, but won’t go to the communist nation.

“As far as Japan and South Korea are concerned, all I’m saying is we defend them. They are paying us a tiny fraction of what it’s costing. I want them to pay,” Trump said. “I would love to continue to defend Japan. I would love to continue to defend South Korea. We have 28,000 soldiers on the line between North and South Korea right now.”

Trump has unnerved foreign countries, especially such allies as South Korea and Japan, as he has displayed deeply negative views of U.S. security commitments overseas, contending the U.S. should stop being the policeman of the world.

The real-estate tycoon has said that the U.S. should be prepared to end protection of allies unless they pay more. He even suggested allowing South Korea and Japan to develop their own nuclear weapons for self-defense so as to reduce U.S. security burdens.

“We are not a country that can afford to defend Saudi Arabia, Germany, the NATO nations, 28 NATO nations, many of which are not paying us and they’re not living up to their agreement,” Trump said on MSNBC. “Japan, South Korea, nobody, we’re like the dummies that protect everybody. All I’m saying is, we have to get reimbursed because we can’t afford it.”

South Korea currently pays about half the costs, about US$900 million a year, to help finance the troop presence. U.S. officials, including new U.S. Forces Korea Commander Vincent Brooks, said it would cost more to keep those troops stationed in the U.S. than it does in Korea.

Trump’s top foreign policy adviser, Walid Phares, said in a recent interview with Yonhap News Agency that Trump’s remarks made as a candidate should be taken as an expression of principles, rather than policy, meaning that such extreme scenarios as troop pullout are only for negotiation purposes.

Maximizing U.S. interests through negotiation is the No. 1 point in Trump’s “America First” foreign policy. Trump and aides have repeatedly emphasized the businessman is an excellent negotiator and is ready to use the skill to regain American interests lost under Democratic administrations.

Earlier this week, Trump even expressed a willingness to negotiate with North Korea’s leader, saying in a media interview, “I would speak to him. I would have no problem speaking to him.” The remark also sparked criticism that a meeting with the North would end up bolstering the dictator.

On Friday, Trump insisted that he would talk to the North, but added that does not mean he’s willing to go to the North.

“I wouldn’t go to North Korea,” he said. “The last thing I do is go. I would never go to North Korea. I don’t know who would say I would go there.”
