South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol said on Wednesday his government has no plans to pursue its own nuclear deterrent in the face of growing North Korean nuclear threats, as he urged the North to return to dialogue aimed at exchanging denuclearization steps for economic benefits.
Yoon also said South Korea doesn't desire political change in North Korea that's brought by force and called for diplomacy aimed at building sustainable peace between the rivals in the face of tensions created by the North's accelerating weapons program.Yoon's comments came days after he proposed an economic assistance package to North Korea if it abandons its nuclear weapons program.
