‘BIG CREDIT’: South Korea Says TRUMP FORCED Kim into Talks

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.10.18

South Korean authorities are giving President Trump ‘big credit’ for his tough talk regarding North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, saying the Commander-in-Chief deserves “big credit” for forcing Kim back to the negotiating table.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in thanked President Trump for his harsh rhetoric towards the communist regime on Wednesday, saying American pressure eventually prompted the hermit kingdom to reopen talks with the South for the first time in over two years.

“I think President Trump deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks,” Moon said at a news conference. “It could be a resulting work of the U.S.-led sanctions and pressure.”

The United States -along with regional allies- passed crippling UN sanctions last year in response to Kim’s continued nuclear and missile tests; cutting off essential supplies such as oil and food from the brutal regime.

The North Korean despot has taken a new approach towards his southern neighbors in recent weeks, wishing them a successful Olympic Games and hoping to “ease military tensions” as the two nations begin formal talks.

Earlier this month, President Trump made global headlines when he warned the dictator that the United States too has a “nuclear button,” but unlike Kim’s America’s button “actually works.”

In a rare gesture of friendship and international cooperation, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un wished South Korea “success” in hosting the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympic Games; saying the competition goes “beyond all political division.”

According to the Los Angeles Times, the communist despot mentioned the games in his annual New Year’s Day address to the nation, adding that the hermit kingdom would soon dispatch a delegation to Seoul to coordinate sending North Korean athletes to compete in the international competition.

“The Winter Olympic Games that will be held soon in the South will be a good opportunity to display the status of the Korean nation and we sincerely wish that the event will be held with good results,” said Kim.

“We know about the political tensions on the Korean Peninsula,” added International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach. “The Olympic Games are about dialogue. They are a symbol of hope and peace.”

Tensions between the United States and North Korea are at an all-time high as Kim Jong Un continues to defy the international community and advance his weapons and missile programs.

Earlier this year, the communist nation was hit with crippling sanctions by the United Nations after North Korea launched an international ballistic missile capable of striking every major American city.

DOOMSDAY DELAY: Kim RE-OPENS COMMUNICATIONS with South Korea

North Korea surprisingly re-opened a pivotal hotline between the hermit kingdom and South Korea on Wednesday, enabling direct communication for the first time in two-years as the two nations ease tensions ahead of this year’s 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

The cross-border channel was first introduced in 1971 as a last-ditch effort to avoid yet another armed conflict on the Korean peninsula, but was shut down in recent years as the relationship between North Korea, South Korea, and the United States rapidly deteriorated.

The hotline sits in the “peace village” of Panmunjom, a ghost town that straddles the heavily fortified de-militarized zone between North and South Korea.

News of its restoration comes just days after North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un issued a rare statement of good will towards his neighbors south of the border, wishing them success as they prepare to host the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

“The Winter Olympic Games that will be held soon in the South will be a good opportunity to display the status of the Korean nation and we sincerely wish that the event will be held with good results,” said Kim.
