Meanwhile in the Koreas

South Korea has just elected a liberal president who favors rebuilding tattered relations with neighboring North Korea, which could signal a policy shift and mute heightened saber-rattling on the peninsula.

On the campaign trail Moon Jae-in [a former human rights attorney] promised to offer a more active diplomatic approach to North Korea centered around more open dialogue with Pyongyang.


Moon also campaigned on a National Interest First policy and wrote in a book, published in January, that South Korea should learn to say “no to America.”
