Trump cancels N. Korea summit

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday canceled a planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, citing the latter's "tremendous anger and open hostility."Trump informed Kim of the cancellation in a letter released by the White House, just hours after North Korea demolished its nuclear test site in front of international journalists.Trump said in the letter it was "inappropriate" to have the June 12 meeting in Singapore."We greatly appreciate your time, patience, and effort with respect to our recent negotiations and discussions relative to a summit long sought by both parties," the letter said. "Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting."

N. Korea says open to talks with U.S. anytime

A top North Korean official said Friday his country is still willing to talk with the U.S., responding to President Donald Trump's abrupt decision to pull out of his planned summit with the North's leader.Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan issued a statement carried by the North's state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). It came hours after Trump announced the surprise decision to withdraw from his summit with Kim Jong-un set for June 12."We express our willingness to sit down face-to-face with the U.S. and resolve issues anytime and in any format," he said in the statement.Kim said the U.S.' decision to cancel the upcoming talks demonstrates how serious the animosity between the North and the U.S. remains, which he said underlines the urgent need of a summit between the leaders of the two countries.

N. Korea threatens to walk away from planned summit with U.S.

North Korea will reconsider the planned summit with the United States if Washington sticks to "unlawful and outrageous acts," its vice foreign minister said Thursday.In a statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency, Choe Son-hui, a North Korean vice foreign minister, said that whether the June 12 summit between its leader Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump will happen as scheduled entirely rests on the decision and behavior of the U.S."Whether the U.S. will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the United States," Choe said."In case the U.S. offends against our goodwill and clings to unlawful and outrageous acts, I will put forward a suggestion to our supreme leadership for reconsidering the DPRK-U.S. summit," she added.DPRK is the abbreviation of the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Trump Cancels Summit with Kim

U.S. President Donald Trump has canceled his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un scheduled to be held in Singapore next month. The White House announced Thursday that Trump sent a letter to Kim in which the U.S. president cited North Korea's "tremendous anger and open hostility" in a recent statement as the reason behind the cancellation. He was apparently referring to comments made by a North Korean diplomat on Thursday, who condemned U.S. Vice President Mike Pence for remarks he recently made that North Korea could end up like Libya if it fails to make a nuclear deal with Washington and that a military option for the North was never excluded.In the letter Trump said he was very much looking forward to being there but felt that at this time it is inappropriate to have the long-planned meeting. Trump said "You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used."

N. Korea Dismantles Main Nuclear Test Site

North Korea has dismantled its nuclear test site. According to the South Korean press corps invited to observe the event, the North set off a series of explosions at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site in Kilju County in North Hamgyong Province on Thursday, beginning with the second tunnel and an observatory at 11 a.m. local time. The third and fourth tunnels were blown by 4:17 p.m. The Associated Press also reported that the demolition was held in the presence of foreign journalists, including its own crew. Earlier this month, the North’s Foreign Ministry said it would allow reporters from five countries --- South Korea, the United States, China, Russia and the U.K. --- to observe the demolition of the Punggye-ri site.

Moon Expresses Deep Regret over Cancelled US-N. Korea Summit

President Moon Jae-in has expressed deep regret over the canceled U.S.-North Korea summit, urging the leaders of the two nations to directly talk to each other. According to presidential spokesman Yoon Young-chan, Moon said early Friday that he is very perplexed and it is very regrettable that the summit will not be held on June 12th. Moon's remarks came during an emergency meeting of the National Security Council(NSC), which was convened immediately after U.S. President Donald Trump announced his decision to scrap his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Moon said that it may be difficult to resolve the sensitive and difficult diplomatic issues through methods of communication currently being employed, but he hopes the two countries will resolve them through more direct and close dialogue between their leaders.

Yonhap (http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr)

South Korea vows to faithfully implement summit agreement with N.K.

Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon said Friday that the government will do its part to faithfully implement the agreement reached by the leaders of the two Koreas last month, despite the U.S. decision to cancel the highly anticipated summit with the North."Our government will do its part in carrying out the Panmunjom Declaration," Cho told reporters, referring to the agreement President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un reached during their April 27 meeting."It appears that (the North) remains sincere in implementing the agreement and making efforts on denuclearization and peace building," added the minister in charge of inter-Korean affairs. On Thursday, U.S. President Donald Trump said in a publicly disclosed letter to the North Korean leader that the cancellation of the planned June 12 summit with the North is due to the "tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement."

N. Korea says Punggye-ri dismantlement represents 'peace-loving' efforts

North Korea's state media said Friday the demolition of its only known nuclear test site has demonstrated its "peace-loving" efforts and pursuit of a "total halt" to nuclear tests.On Thursday, the North blew up all the underground tunnels of the Punggye-ri nuclear test site located in its northeastern mountainous region, an event only disclosed to a group of journalists from South Korea and four other countries.The move followed its promise to halt nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile tests and is regarded as the first step toward complete denuclearization promised during the inter-Korean summit last month."The dismantlement of the nuclear test ground is a vivid manifestation of the DPRK government's fixed peace-loving stand to join in the international aspiration and efforts for total halt to the nuclear test and make positive contribution to building a nuclear free world," the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said in English.

Cancellation of U.S.-N.K. summit expected to have limited impact on S. Korean market: BOK

The recent cancellation of the U.S.-North Korea summit will likely have a limited impact on the South Korean financial market, a senior central bank official said Friday.The Bank of Korea (BOK) held an emergency meeting at 8:30 a.m., hours after U.S. President Donald Trump released his letter to scrap the planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on June 12 in Singapore.The closed-door meeting was chaired by Yoon Myun-shik, the senior deputy governor of the BOK, with several senior officials at the central bank."As we saw in the overnight session of the U.S. market, the index fell in the beginning but recovered the losses afterwards," Yoon told reporters after the meeting. "The South Korean market is expected to move likewise, although foreign investors here are more sensitive to geopolitical risks."

Trump calls off US-NK summit

US President Donald Trump on Thursday called off the planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, citing hostilities displayed by North Korea.The cancellation comes less than a day after President Moon Jae-in returned from Washington DC after a summit meeting with Trump. At the meeting, Trump hinted that the schedule of the meeting, planned for June 12 in Singapore, could be changed. At 11:30 p.m., Moon summoned his top national security and foreign affairs officials including National Security Office chief Chung Eui-yong. Chung, who had accompanied Moon to Washington had stated earlier that he considers the US-North Korea summit to be "99.9 percent" set.

NK dismantles nuclear test site

North Korea destroyed its Punggye-ri test site in front of international journalists Thursday, pool reports said, in what Seoul officials said appears to be a step toward denuclearization ahead of a planned summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in June. The North dynamited the northern underground tunnel in Punggye-ri, a northeastern remote area, around 11 a.m., according to a brief pool report.

BOK freezes key rate on emerging market woes

South Korea’s central bank kept the interest rate steady at 1.5 percent for six straight months in a unanimous board decision Thursday, citing external uncertainties due to an upshot in capital influx and currency woes from emerging markets.Despite relatively solid economic growth at home and abroad, the lingering uncertainties and low inflationary pressure on the demand side here led to the “accommodative monetary policy stance,” according to the seven-member Monetary Policy Board of the Bank of Korea.

Trump cancels summit with Kim Jong-un

In a dramatic diplomatic turn, President Donald Trump canceled next month's summit with North Korea's Kim Jong-un Thursday, citing the ''tremendous anger and open hostility'' in a recent statement by the North.Trump said in a letter to Kim released by the White House that, based on the statement, he felt it was ''inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting.'' Adding his own threat, he said that while the North Koreans talk about their nuclear capabilities, ''ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used.''In the Korean statement that Trump cited, the North referred to Vice President Mike Pence as a ''political dummy'' for his comments on the North and said it was just as ready to meet in a nuclear confrontation as at the negotiating table.

Childbirths Fall to Fresh Record Low
Fewer than 90,000 children were born in Korea in the first three months of this year, a fresh record low, but deaths exceeded the 80,000 mark for the first time. The birthrate has been dwindling despite government spending worth more than W200 trillion to tackle the issue over the past decade (US$1=W1,083). According to Statistics Korea on Wednesday, 89,600 babies were born in the first quarter, down 9,100 on-year. The biggest on-year decline was in March, when 30,000 babies were born, 3,200 fewer than the same month last year.January and March are normally the two months with the highest numbers of births. "This is not a good sign," a Statistics Korea spokesman said.

Dialogue with N.Korea 'to Resume After Joint Drills End'
President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday told reporters that dialogue with North Korea will resume once joint aerial drills with the U.S. in South Korea end. Speaking after a summit with Trump in Washington, Moon said high-level talks with North Korea and other dialogue "will resume after Friday," when the Max Thunder joint military exercises that North Korea has criticized come to an end. A high-ranking Cheong Wa Dae official declined to say what the basis for the remarks was but added that Moon believes "many areas that are presently deadlocked will be resolved after Friday."

Korea Ranks Dismally Low in Labor Relations
Korea ranked 73rd among 137 countries in terms of labor market efficiency last year and near the bottom at 130th in labor relations. The Korea Economic Research Institute said Wednesday the annual Global Competitiveness Report from the World Economic Forum shows that Korea's ranking in labor market efficiency inched up a little compared to 77th in 2016, but it is still in the lower middle.Since peaking at 24th in 2007, the ranking has plummeted in the wake of the global financial crisis. In the subcategory of labor relations, only seven countries fared worse than Korea, including Uruguay (131st), Haiti (133rd), and South Africa (137th). Chu Kwang-ho of the institute said, "To create good-quality jobs within the country, we need to increase labor market efficiency to the level where it was 10 years ago, lure foreign investment, and bring manufacturing back home."

Trump hints at support for North Korea’s gradual denuclearization

During his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on May 22, US President Donald Trump unveiled his vision for the North Korea-US summit, which is scheduled to take place in Singapore on June 12.Trump held open the possibility of accepting the North’s gradual denuclearization – something he has stanchly opposed – while asserting once more his support for a security guarantee for Pyongyang and for the North’s economic development.Prior to his summit with President Moon, Trump acknowledged that dealing with the North Korean nuclear issue in one fell swoop might not be feasible and emphasized achieving denuclearization in the shortest timeframe possible.

Summit between Moon and Trump gets summit preparations back on track

South President Moon Jae-in and US President Donald Trump’s May 22 summit appears likely to go some way in getting preparations for an upcoming North Korea-US summit back on track after a brief period of turbulence. Trump said the US would guarantee North Korea regime security and provide large-scale economic support if it accepts complete denuclearization. While he had stated commitments to regime security and economic support in the past, it’s laudable that he made his position that much clearer in his meeting with President Moon.

Nut rage heiress Cho Hyun-ah back in the public spotlight

Pyongyang says it is still willing to hold talks with U.S. 'anytime'

North Korea said Friday it was willing to talk with the United States “anytime through whatever method,” expressing “surprise and regret” that U.S. President Donald Trump called off a bilateral summit that was planned to be held on June 12 in Singapore. In an unusually conciliatory tone toward Washington, North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) cited Kim Kye-gwan, first vice foreign minister, as saying in a statement that Kim Jong-un was pulling “all his effort” into preparing for the summit with Trump and once said he thought the meeting would be the first step to a “good beginning” of bilateral relations.

Trump cancels summit with Kim Jong-un in Singapore

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday canceled his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un scheduled for June 12 in Singapore in an angry response to the North’s statement warning of a “nuclear showdown.”“Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting,” said Trump in a letter released by the White House. “Therefore, please let this letter serve to represent that the Singapore summit, for the good of both parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place.”

North dismantles nuclear test site

North Korea dismantled its Punggye-ri nuclear test site in the presence of correspondents from five countries on Thursday.Explosions in tunnels took place between 11 a.m. to 4:17 p.m. as reporters from South Korea, China, Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom looked on, according to a pool report.The journalists took a train, bus and hiked to North Korea’s northern nuclear test site on Wednesday night and Thursday morning from the port city of Wonsan, more than 400 kilometers (250 miles) away. The reporters were invited by Pyongyang to watch the dismantlement at a safe distance.The North said the international reporters would be allowed to transmit articles and footage only after returning to Wonsan, in North Korea’s southeastern Kangwon Province, where a temporary press center was set up - meaning their coverage would have a time lag of some 20 hours.

Kim Jong-un, Reaffirms South Korea’s Sincerity at ROK-US Summit to Avoid Breaking "Promise" with President Moon
On May 23, North Korea allowed South Korean journalists to enter the country to cover the demolition of the nuclear test facility in Punggye-ri. Thus the South Korean press will also be able to directly cover the demolition of the nuclear test facility, where North Korea had conducted six nuclear tests. North Korea seemed poised to ban the media coverage by the South Korean press, having them anxiously wait until the last minute, when Pyongyang dramatically gave approval. Now, the North appears to have kept the verbal agreement that Kim Jong-un (photo), chairman of the State Affairs Commission made at the inter-Korean summit on April 27.

Prosecutor General Moon Moo-il Suspected of Exerting Influence on Gangwon Land Investigation
On May 15, the prosecution team investigating corruption in the recruitment of Gangwon Land employees announced that they tried to press charges against the senior officials at the Prosecution Service who exerted influence on the investigation and judged that it was necessary to detain Liberty Korea Party lawmaker Kweon Seong-dong when questioning him, but that their work was delayed because unlike his original word, Prosecutor General Moon Moo-il (57) led the investigation. Earlier, Ahn Mi-hyeon (39), a prosecutor at the Uijeongbu District Prosecutors' Office who had disclosed the existence of external pressure on the Gangwon Land investigation, held a press conference and argued that Moon criticized the decision by the Chuncheon District Prosecutors' Office last December to summon lawmaker Kweon for questioning. The controversy is snowballing as allegations of external pressure on the Gangwon Land investigation spread to the incumbent prosecutor general.

The Special Prosecutor for the D-ruking Case, In the Hands of Bareun Mirae and the Party for Democracy and Peace
The ruling and opposition parties agreed on May 14 to pass a bill on a special prosecutor for the D-ruking case in the parliamentary session on May 18. As a result, the investigation of D-ruking and his manipulation of online comments will now go into the hands of a special prosecutor. Since it will take time for the president to appoint a special prosecutor after receiving referrals of candidates and for the special prosecutor to gather an investigative team, the investigation is not likely to begin until after the June 13 local elections.

N. Korea says still willing to talk with U.S.

North Korea expressed regret at U.S. President Donald Trump's abrupt decision to cancel a historic summit next month in Singapore between the leaders of the two countries but the nuclear-armed country left open the door for dialogue any time. North Korea feels "very sorry" at Trump's unexpected decision that shows the seriousness of animosity between the two countries and underlines the urgent need of a summit between their leaders, Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan said in a statement published by Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA)."We express our willingness to sit down face-to-face with the U.S. and resolve issues anytime and in any format," the official said, adding North Korea's goal and willingness to do everything for peace and stability of the Korean peninsula and mankind remain "unchanged."

Cho Hyun-ah, a former Korean Air vice president known for a "nut rage" incident in 2014, was quizzed by immigration authorities Thursday over allegations that she and her mother have illegally hired Filipino housemaids at their homes.

BOK stays pat on rate as economic conditions worsen

South Korea’s central bank on Thursday put off raising interest rates amid deteriorating economic conditions that led a top economic adviser warning of an economy at the onset of a recession. The Bank of Korea stayed pat by keeping the policy rate at 1.5 percent, last bumped up in November. “There are various mixed factors. We still believe the economy can grow at its potential rate (of 3.0 percent),” said its governor Lee Ju-yeol after the policy meeting, brushing off concerns about stagflation - referring to a dangerous condition of stagnation, high unemployment, and inflation. Many economists shot down the possibility of a hike in the first half and believe additional increase could stop at one regardless of faster raises in the U.S. interest rates.
