Putin talks peace with South Korean President

Vladimir Putin has met with his South Koran counterpart Moon Jae-in to discuss the importance of a diplomatic solution to the Korean crisis.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has met his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in during the course of the Eastern Economic Forum in the Russian city of Vladivostok. North Koran delegates are also present at the Forum.

After the meeting, Putin continued to emphasis the importance of the joint Sino-Russian Double Freeze initiative calling for a cessation of missile tests on both sides of the 38th Parallel as well as a request for the US to cease delivering its controversial THAAD missile systems to South Korea. Russia and China further call for a cease in military drills between the US, South Korea and Japan while proposing direct talks between Pyongyang and Washington at the soonest possible date.

Putin restated the importance of the double-freeze from the Russian perspective, after conducting private talks with Moon.

The Russian President said,

“It is clear that it is impossible to solve the problems of the Korean peninsula by sanctions alone and pressure. One shouldn’t give in to emotions and drive North Korea into a corner. Without political and diplomatic tools, it is very difficult to shift the situation”.

Putin continued, saying that it was “impossible” to shift the situation in the absence of a careful diplomatic process.

While North Korean delegates are present at the Eastern Economic Forum, it does not appear that they have spoken with their South Koran counterparts although the possibility still remains.

According to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov,

“If the parliamentarians of the two neighbouring countries want to hold a meeting on the territory of the Russian Federation, I think we will not have any objections.

Of course, we will be happy to give this opportunity, although it seems to me that such a meeting can happen both on the territory of North Korea and South Korea. The two Koreas have the experience of dialogue, cooperation, and if we can be helpful in establishing an intra-Korean dialogue, we will, of course, always respond to any such proposals with pleasure if they follow on the part of the two Koreas”.

The Eastern Economic Forum continues through the 7th of September.

This is all far too sensible and grown up.

There’s simply no talk of BEGGING FOR WAR

Yes but, generating a crisis and exploiting a crisis sells weapons, and allows prepositioning of a first strike component (THAAD). Peace and stability is bad for the us business model.

I’m sure that meeting VVP is a big event which would make anybody nervous, but Moon Jae-in looks to have really overdone it with the hair dye.

Supporting peace and cooperation in an atmosphere of calm– this is genuine blue chip diplomacy we’re witnessing, during a time when the world desperately needs it.

It shows just how far adhering to strong principles will go. Putin has set about creating a better country for his fellow Russians and his strategy seems to be offering the rest of us some hope at the same time.

Hope and faith is always inherent to those who will not compromise on what is true, right and just… no matter what comes. How blessed the world is that there is one leader standing up– even if he could very well be the last man standing– he will have all of us behind him and his peoples.

Every time Putin opens his mouth, he makes the US look more morally bankrupt.

Finally some sanity from someone. The question is, “Why didn’t Trump do this months ago, first?” After all, he is the one who has been touted as “The great negotiator”!

Is it because Trump has been co-opted by the Swamp and he has not been ‘allowed’ to diffuse the situation? Or some other reason?
