South Korean man’s death is an ‘opportunity’ for inter-Korean talks, Moon says

Moon publicly shared his condolences, but said that he wants the killing to become more than a “tragic incident"

North Korea’s lethal shooting of a South Korean government worker will hopefully become an “opportunity for dialogue and cooperation,” South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Monday.

Speaking at a meeting with his top aides at the presidential Blue House, Moon emphasized the importance of continued inter-Korean dialogue despite the Sept. 22 killing, saying that he doesn’t want the situation to end as nothing more than a “tragic incident.”
