Moon vows utmost efforts for denuclearization

Q: What role do you want Japan to play to solve North Korea’s nuclear issues and achieve peace and security on the Korean Peninsula?

A: Japan will be able to fulfill a very important role in the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula. I think this is true for such various fields as close cooperation among South Korea, Japan and the United States for the achievement of the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and the normalization of diplomatic ties between Japan and North Korea for the security of the North Korean regime. In particular, I think dialogue between Japan and North Korea should be resumed. If Japan-North Korea relations are normalized, that would greatly contribute to peace and security in Northeast Asia beyond the Korean Peninsula.
