South Korean President Says North Korea No Longer Demands Removal of U.S. Forces

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday that North Korea has dropped its long-standing demand for American forces to withdraw completely from the Korean peninsula as a condition for denuclearization.

“The North Koreans did not present any conditions that the United States could not accept, such as the withdrawal of American troops in South Korea,” Moon told newspaper publishers at a conference ahead of his own summit meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un next Friday.

“They only talk about an end to hostilities against their country and about getting security guarantees. It’s safe to say that the plans for dialogue between the North and the United States could proceed because that has been made clear,” said Moon.

Moon said that Kim told South Korean envoys last month that he is willing to give up nuclear weapons if North Korea receives certain “security guarantees” and does not feel “militarily threatened.”

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
