SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korean President Moon
Jae-in said on Thursday US President Donald Trump has promised
to seek Seoul’s approval before pursuing any option against
nuclear-armed North Korea.

Trump’s recent aggressive comments about deploying possible
military options underscored his resolve to counter the threat
from the North’s nuclear weapons and missile programs.

However, they do not appear to have been made with the
intention to take military action, Moon said at a news
conference to mark his first 100 days in office.

Moon urged North Korea not to make
further provocations, saying it would face much tougher
sanctions that the impoverished country would be unable to
withstand if it persists with its nuclear weapons
development.
