North Korea's Cham Offensive

My name is Daniel. I was an English teacher in Seoul, South Korea, and am now a writer who has
published three books including South Korea: Our Story by Daniel Nardini.
                             It seems too good to be true. In my view it is. North Korea has reestablished
cross border hotline communications with South Korea. In another “concessionary” move, North
Korea will probably send its athletes to the Winter Olympic games in Pyeongchang and may send
officials for possible talks on other issues to South Korea. From what I see of this, North Korea is
conducting a “charm offensive.” It is trying to give the impression that it is giving something for
better relations with South Korea. In truth, it is really giving nothing. It is not going to do away
with its nuclear or missile programs, it will not cease its atomic weapons creation program, and it will 
not stop it provocations against South Korea, Japan and the United States. North Korea is using a
strategy of divide the United States and South Korea, and hope that it can break the U.S.-South
Korea military alliance. It seems that the current South Korean President Moon Jae-in is trying
recreate another Sunshine policy. From what I am seeing current U.S. President Donald Trump
is NOT going to allow anything that provides money and resources to North Korea from
occurring. U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has made Trump’s position clear
that mo talks will be held between the United States and North Korea until North Korea puts
its nuclear program and missile technology into the negotiations. This of course North Korea
will not do. There are many Koreans who recognize that the North Korean government is
not being sincere about what it is doing. I hope that more Koreans will see through North
Korea’s cynical ploy.
