South Korean President Moon Jae-in has said the Tokyo Olympics could be an opportunity to resume dialogue between North Korea and South Korea.
“The games scheduled for this year will be an opportunity for dialogue between South Korea and Japan, South and North Korea, North Korea and Japan and North Korea and the United States,” Moon said in Seoul. In memory of a struggle against Japanese colonial rule in his country at the beginning of the last century.
Moon said he would like to support Japan as much as possible to bring the games to a successful conclusion. “I hope both Korea and Japan can recover our Govt-19 affected economy,” Moon said. “A new order can be created in the post-Covit-19 era.”
South Korea has high diplomatic expectations for the Olympics. The government hopes they can provide a starting point to renew relations with North Korea. Relations between the two countries have been strained since talks between the United States and Pyongyang over the dismantling of North Korea’s nuclear program, which was suspended in 2019.
According to viewers, Moon wants to repeat the ‘success’ of the Winter Games in Pyongyang three years ago. Then there was talk of good relations between Seoul and Pyongyang. Athletes from both countries entered the stadium under the name ‘Korea’ at the opening ceremony. The women’s ice hockey team consisted of players from both countries.
