Moon urges Pyongyang to respond to efforts from Washington and Seoul

Neither North Korea nor the U.S. want to lapse back into pre-2018 tensions, the South Korean President said on Monday, warning both sides against a "return to the past."

Speaking in a meeting with senior officials, Moon Jae-in said he plans to use next week's U.S.-ROK summit in Washington DC to hold "in-depth discussions on how the ROK and the U.S. can work together to advance the peace process on the Korean peninsula."
