‘Meet anytime, anywhere’: Moon answers Kim’s hostile remarks with olive branch

In his New Year's address, South Korean President Moon Jae-in once again pitched more dialogue with the DPRK

Just days after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un slammed Seoul for continuing joint military drills with the United States, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Monday that he’d meet the North Korean leader “anytime, anywhere.”

Amid North Korea’s ongoing Eighth Party Congress and news of a potential military parade, Moon addressed South Korea in a New Year’s speech that included direct messages to Pyongyang, although with fewer explicit pitches than last year.
