In Trump era, S.Korea must lead on N. Korean nuke issue: Moon

Leading presidential hopeful says South Korea should prioritize "national interests"

Leading presidential candidate Moon Jae-in said on Tuesday that South Korea will have to take the initiative in dealing with the North Korea’s nuclear program, and on inter-Korean issues, in the Donald Trump era.

Speaking at a seminar entitled “Inauguration of U.S. Trump and Direction of South Korea’s Foreign and Security Policy" hosted by his think tank in Seoul, Moon pledged to shape South Korea's diplomacy to “responsibly ensure national security.”
