Former Unification Minister Jeong Se-hyeon called for a change of thinking from President Yun Seok-yeol, saying that it is a big mistake to think that North Korea can be put under pressure through China or Russia.

He warned that if North Korea puts pressure on North Korea to come out as a nuclear negotiator with cards such as reduction of ROK-US military training and support for food and fertilizer, “war could break out during the term of President Yun Seok-yeol.”

In an interview with YTN Radio’s ‘New King Park Ji-hoon’ on the 30th, former Minister Jeong said, “The US and the Blue House (Presidential Office) are also talking that North Korea only has a cable connection left for a nuclear test.” judged to be the same

Regarding the detection of ‘North Korea’s nuclear detonator operation test’, former Minister Jeong said, “The size of the nuclear test bomb has become smaller and lighter, meaning that a nuclear bomb capable of carrying small missiles will be made 400 km, 600 km. It means that it can be loaded on a missile with a similar range,” he said.

He continued, “Considering that ICBMs are aimed at the United States and South Korea (and Japan) at short and medium-range, no matter how closely South Korea and the U.S. and Japan cooperate, they will come out to stop mine first. Extended deterrence could become meaningless.”

When the host asked, “Did North Korea conduct a nuclear test in advance with China and Russia?” Jeong said, “You should not think that North Korea is also moving in the way that we ask the United States anything.” But when it comes to doing things that are not beneficial to China or not helpful to Russia, they do it on their own terms. That’s scary.”

“This is an important point that we should not forget when pursuing North Korea policy,” he said. “he emphasized.

“The only way to do this is through negotiations,” said former Minister Jeong, saying, “We must fundamentally prevent North Korea from using nuclear weapons or missiles against South Korea.”

He said, “First of all, we need to appease North Korea and make it come to the summit, but to do that, you have to give rice and fertilizer, and if you think that North Korea won’t do bad things because they don’t give you anything and only give you fear (It’s a big mistake).”

Regarding the conditions for bringing North Korea to the negotiating table, Minister Jeong said, “North Korea has already set the condition that ‘If you want to have a summit, stop militarily threatening actions and withdraw its hostile policy toward North Korea’.” “If we want to make it come to the negotiations, we have to definitely reduce things like the size of the South Korea-U.S. joint exercises,” he said.

“President Yun said on CNN that the ‘age of subjugation is over’, but if subjugation is to appease North Korea so that it can come to negotiations, that is a very short thought. It will,” he raised his voice.

In other words, “North Korea’s nuclear capability has rather advanced because it has been pressured for nearly 30 years after the North Korean nuclear issue was raised in 1993, and then conciliated and then back and forth.” War could break out during his tenure,” he said, ordering President Yoon to go out of his way to appease North Korea.
