SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korean President Moon Jae-in said yesterday it would not be easy for North Korea to destroy its nuclear arsenal quickly, even if wanted to, given its weapons programmes were so developed. Speaking to reporters in the Philippines, Mr Moon said: “If talks begin to resolve the North Korea nuclear issue, I feel it will be realistically difficult for North Korea to completely destroy its nuclear capabilities when their nuclear and missile arsenal are at a developed stage,” Mr Moon said in a briefing. “If so, North Korea’s nuclear programme should be suspended, and negotiations could go on to pursue complete denuclearisation.”
