Top News: S. Korea downplays Pyongyang's threats to cancel talks

South Korea believes North Korea stays dedicated to bettering relations regardless of strongly criticizing Seoul over ongoing U.S.-South Korean navy drills and saying it won’t return to inter-Korean talks until its grievances are resolved.

South Korea’s Unification Ministry spokesman Baek Tae-hyun mentioned Friday that Seoul expects Pyongyang to faithfully abide by the agreements between North Korean chief Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in of their summit final month. The Korean leaders then issued a imprecise vow on the “full denuclearization” of the peninsula and pledged everlasting peace.

North Korea has canceled a high-level assembly with South Korea and threatened to scrap subsequent month’s historic summit with President Donald Trump, saying it will not be unilaterally pressured into relinquishing its nuclear weapons.
