S. Korean president says inter-Korean summit not proper now
font size    

South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun said Tuesday it is not proper time for holding an inter-Korean summit before the settlement of the nuclear issue on Korean Peninsula.

"We may have little to discuss under the current circumstances, " even if a meeting was held between Roh and top leader Kim Jong- il of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Roh said in a joint interview with local inter-net media.

"The foremost things are the settlement of the nuclear weapons problem and the normalization of inter-Korean relations. Without the settlement of these two issues, inter-Korean relations may not stand a chance of improving," the president said.

Roh added that it will be important to let Pyongyang believe it can profit from abandoning its nuclear program.

Local media has focused on a possible summit between Roh and Kim recently. In June 2000, then president Kim Daejong visited Pyongyang and held the first-ever Inter-Korean Summit with Kim Jong-il.
