President Moon Jae-in renewed his resolve to pursue sanctions and dialogue to tackle North Korea’s nuclear program during a meeting with former US President Barack Obama on Monday, saying now is the “last chance” for the regime to return to the negotiating table.
During the 40-minute talk, Moon shared the results of his recent summit with his incumbent US counterpart Donald Trump, asking for Obama’s advice on ways to advance the relationship. The former president stressed bipartisan US support for the alliance and wished Moon success in his presidency, according to Cheong Wa Dae.
“President Trump and I agreed to continue to apply sanctions and pressure to resolve the North’s nuclear and missile issues, while pursuing dialogue in parallel,” Moon was quoted as saying by his press secretary Yoon Young-chan.
“Obama said that as many South Koreans hope for his success, Moon would no doubt meet the people’s expectations, quoting former President Abraham Lincoln whom he said he respects the most that with the people’s support you can do anything.”
Obama continued to undermine Trump in his speech by criticizing his decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord.
Obama also praised Islam while he was in Indonesia, boasting about his Muslim step-father and praising the Indonesian Constitution. Yes, the same Constitution that imprisoned a Christian Governor for ‘blaspheming the Quran’.
“My stepfather … was raised a Muslim but he respected Hindus and he respected Buddhists and he respected Christians. If you are strong in your own faith then you should not be worried about someone else’s faith.”
Who does Obama think he is? President? Obama is back to community organizing, but this time on an international level.
