Korea-US FTA 'well balanced,' but economic talks possible: Moon

Moon has taken issue with how the buildup of the THAAD has taken place, accusing the South Korean Defense Ministry, which he inherited from his conservative predecessor, of adding four launchers to the battery without informing him or the public.

The ex-President of the Republic of Korea Park Geun-Hye was removed from power by impeachment this year, after which in may was held early elections, which resulted in the victory of the democratic leader moon Jae-In. Recent reports as well as opaque tweets from Trump himself point to an increasingly exasperated USA president.

"The nuclear problem on the Korean peninsula has arisen from the hostile policy of the United States and threats to attack North Korea with nuclear weapons".

The threat from the rogue state has reached to new heights under the present dictator Kim Jong-un so much so that the U.S. had to deploy its Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-ballistic missile defense system, inviting strong Chinese protests which sees the presence of the system on the Korean peninsula, in its backyard, breach of its sovereignty and a security threat.

President Moon Jae-in has stopped on Capitol Hill on his maiden visit to Washington. In May, North Korean state media accused the USA and South Korea of attempting to kill Kim Jong-un with biochemical weapons.

Pyongyang is still launching threats alluded to Seoul and Washington after Donald Trump said that he is ready to resolve the North Korean issue with or without China's support. The official said it would be a "friendly, frank discussion about the trade imbalance". Already he has taken steps to delay the deployment of the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, known as THAAD, an anti-missile system meant to counter any North Korean strikes. Though it has cited different sources, it has been known that the ex-President of South Korea was not a fan of the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"For too long, have we been closed off from each other", Moon said last week of the North.

The Trump administration wants to bring Kim to the negotiating table but with preconditions.
