U.S. apprehensive about inter-Korean economic cooperation

Saturday morning’s Asahi reported from Seoul that the Trump administration suspects that the inter-Korean agreement reached last week on connecting the two nations through roads and railways may infringe upon existing UN economic sanctions against the DPRK. In order to address such U.S. concerns, the South Korean government probably will not take any action to implement the accord this year based on the assessment that work can start next year contingent on the issuance of a declaration to end the Korean War. The daily added that the Moon administration may be planning to invite President Trump to Seoul this year when Chairman Kim is expected to travel there so that the three leaders can jointly declare an end to the Korean War.
