2016 according to Seoul’s foreign ministry the two sides shared the view
that their ties must be restored fully and that they have a common
understanding to hold a joint vice-ministerial panel on

exchanges on North Korea the two sides fought close cooperation to make
progress towards denuclearization noting that the situation was fluid given that

importance of continued dialogue between North Korea and the US and to keep the
pledges made during their Singapore summit

  1. Why do S Korea keeps believing china is its friend. The chinese is the reason why NK and SK are still divided. The chinese needs NK as a buffer zone. They don’t care about Korea or a Koreans. Look at the way they destroyed SK companies and tourism when the Thadd missiles were installed in SK. SK needs to stop relying on trade with china and focus on reuniting with NK. A united Korea’s economy would be 10 times larger if this were to happen. Dump the chinese, focus on your relations up north.

  2. China is neither our friend nor our enemy. However, I admit that China one of my neighbouring countries. Of course, I don't fully trust China with obvious reasons including Thaad retaliation and so on. However again, it should not prevent us from trading with China but then again, China is not that trustful in doing a business…So, we always need to be careful in dealing with China. I personally foresee that China will be trapped in the state of "middle-income country" if they continue acting arrogant and ignorant toward intellectual property rights and the rule of the laws.

  3. I think that many South Korean people are good at using English. They are better at using foreign languages than most of Japanese people are. Why? Because most of South Korean people never love their own home-country South Korea. From the bottoms of their hearts, South Korean people really want to escape from South Korea.
