Seoul says no more war on Korean Peninsula

Foreign investors have been pulling out money en mass from South Korea's bond market mainly short-term bonds this month
"If South Korea really wants no war on the Korean Peninsula, it should try to stop this military exercise".
However, MoonsaidNorth Korea should stop the development of a fully operational Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM).
Annual military drills involving tens of thousands of USA and South Korean troops are due to begin on Monday. But we don't need to be impatient.
Secretary Mattis reaffirmed the ironclad USA commitment to defend the ROK and emphasized the military's role in providing extended deterrence.
Moon's comments follow a spike in animosity generated by North Korea's warning that it might send missiles into waters near the US territory of Guam, and Trump's warlike language. The South, where over 28,000 United States troops are now stationed, has its own stance on the crisis. "We continue to be interested in finding a way to get dialogue, but that's up to him", he said.
The ban is in accordance with the new sanctions on North Korea which were imposed by the United Nations earlier this month. The Koreas are still technically at war, with no peace treaty signed at the end of the 1950-53 Korean War. "It is a firm agreement between South Korea and the U.S".

"The Trump administration has called on allies to take on more responsibility, and while Washington's commitment to Seoul is ironclad, it also supports South Korean steps to enhance its security", he said in an interview. "I don't know what you're referring to", I press.
US officials and experts say the North has demonstrated major progress toward that goal with dozens of missile tests, including two ICBM launches last month.
Pyongyang says it needs nuclear weapons to defend itself from a possible invasion by the "imperialist enemy" - the United States.
Both Secretary Mattis and Minister Song reiterated the importance of the U.S. -ROK Alliance and expressed their commitment to build a stronger partnership based on mutual trust and cooperation. Pyongyang responded by saying it was considering a strike against the US Pacific territory of Guam. Indigenous Guamanians are the Chamorros, who are most closely related to natives in the Philippines and Taiwan. Russian Federation "sees opportunity with the USA that is otherwise occupied", Bartholomew tells me.
Also, with that as a backdrop-and the perception, at least, of continuing U.S.
The North Korea test will determine China's future
He also spoke by phone with China's president, whom the Trump administration considers critical to the diffusion of the crisis. Bluster from the president can increase the dangers of miscalculation or cause a downward spiral of words and deeds.
