HeadlineDec 24, 2019

In China, leaders from Japan, China and South Korea are meeting today in the southwestern city of Chengdu to discuss regional cooperation and reducing tensions on the Korean Peninsula. The meeting comes as North Korea has threatened the United States with a “Christmas gift” if the U.S. doesn’t lift the economic sanctions against North Korea. During today’s meeting, South Korean President Moon Jae-in encouraged North Korea and the U.S. to work toward peace.

President Moon Jae-in: “We agreed that peace on the Korean Peninsula was in the common interest of the three countries. We also agreed to make efforts together to help promote North Korea-U.S. dialogue for denuclearization and peace.”
