Seoul will continue to pursue dialogue despite N. Korean ICBM launch: Moon

President says summit with Kim Jong Un still possible, calls for family reunion this October

Seoul’s push for renewed inter-Korean dialogue will not be affected by North Korea's Tuesday ICBM launch, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said in a speech in Germany on Thursday.

Seoul is still willing to engage in talks with Pyongyang, he reiterated, but only if Pyongyang expresses an interest in building a "permanent peace system" on the Korean Peninsula.
