South Korea dismisses Pyongyang’s peace call | Al Jazeera English

South Korea has dismissed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s calls for improved ties, urging his government to take nuclear disarmament steps first.

Kim Eui-do, South Korean Unification Ministry spokesman, told reporters on Friday that North Korea should first make “sincere” efforts for nuclear disarmament, if it wanted to improve strained ties with Seoul.

“In order to improve ties between the South and the North, North Korea must show sincerity in building trust and above all, it must make genuine efforts for denuclearisation,” the ministry spokesman said in a statement.
