USG officials comment on inter-Korean talks

Sunday papers highlighted Secretary of Defense Mattis’ press remarks on the upcoming inter-Korean dialogue made following his teleconference with his ROK counterpart on Friday. “Right now, it is only about the Games,” he said. “The United States and South Korea are in complete lockstep.” The papers also focused on Secretary Tillerson’s remarks to CNN on Friday that it’s too early to tell if the inter-Korea meeting will open the way for future talks involving the U.S.


Monday papers took up remarks made at Camp David on Saturday by President Trump, in which he commented on the inter-Korea dialogue by saying: “I very much want to see it work out between the two countries…. I would love to see them take it beyond the Olympics.” He went on to say: “And at the appropriate time, we’ll get involved.” The President also suggested that he is open to speaking by phone with Kim Jong Un by saying: “I always believe in talking…. Absolutely I would do that, no problem with that at all.”
