How Moon’s diplomatic and security reshuffle may impact North Korea
More than a reshuffle in Seoul is likely needed for substantive progress
President Moon Jae-in reshuffled South Korea’s main diplomatic and security posts on Friday. The personnel changes give a new face to North Korea policy, revealing Moon’s hope that a familiar face for Pyongyang could be used to bring about a revival of active talks between the two Koreas, and to generate momentum for talks between the DPRK and United States.
However, in light of recent developments, analysis suggests it will take more than a reshuffle in Seoul to bring about substantive progress between Washington and Pyongyang.
