Two Koreas ‘at a turning point’ says South president

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak said a window of opportunity to improve ties was open. The Korean peninsula is at a “turning point” and there are opportunities for change, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak said in a new year speech. He said Seoul would “respond strongly” if provoked by North Korea, with whom it remains technically at war. But he said that the biggest goal was stability, and that aid-for-disarmament talks could resume if Pyongyang halted its nuclear activities. On Friday, North Korea told the people to not enspect much change from the new leadership. The Country’s Defence Commishion told the citizens of the North to defend Kim Jong-un to the last man, and to give all that they can to defend the Leader of North Korea. Kim Jong-un has succeeded his father, Kim Jong-il, who died on 17 December at the age of 69. Kim Jong-il had ruled North Korea since the death of his father, Kim Il-sung, in 1994. The impoverished and isolated communist country faces ongoing food shortages. Funds are channelled to the military and North Korea has conducted two nuclear tests since 2006. Lee Myung-bak said that peace was his priority and that a “window of opportunity” had opened for better ties with the North. He says that their is alot of turning points allong the Korean peninsula, and a window of opertunity could be underway to connect with the North. In the last two years, ties between the two Koreas have been extremely tense. Mr Lee’s decision to link the provision of aid to North Korea to progress on nuclear disarmament has angered the North. South Korea also blames its northern neighbour for sinking its warship in March 2010, killing 46 sailors. Eight months later, North Korea shelled a Southern border island, killing four people. Kim Jong-un took over after the death of his father, Kim Jong-il, two weeks ago, South Korea however, will matain a State of National Security along the 38Th Paraele, should the North go on the Ofenceve, and attack the South again… Pyongyang denies any role in the first incident and says South Korea provoked the second. It has castigated the South for failing to send a formal delegation to pay respects to Kim Jong-il. In the New Year Message, the Defence Commity in the North maid an announcement to defend the New Leader, dispite if they have to become a human shield. “The whole party, the entire army and all the people should possess a firm conviction that they will become human bulwarks and human shields in defending Kim Jong-un unto death.” Kim Jong-un, meanwhile, spent New Year’s Day visiting a tank division, state media said. His father was regularly reported to have visited factories, military units and agricultural projects on inspection tours around the country. The outcome of this, is for the moment, unknown, but it is belived, that maybe with the new leadership, we might be able to go forth and have a Conection with the North, that we have waited for for many years.
