TOKYO – If anyone wins the Nobel Peace Prize for the current effort to solve the North Korean nuclear problem, it should be President Trump. The South Korean president said that on Monday, when he was suggested that he himself would be eligible for the award.
President Moon Jae-in has done everything to flatter Trump and attribute to him that he has created the environment that has led to the notable diplomatic approach.
But even by Moon's standards, the last remarks were really something
They came after Lee Hee-ho, the widow of the late South Korean President Kim Dae-jung, sent Moon a message in which she [Freitagabend] Summit congratulated North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
The one-day summit was full of warm encounters and ended with a joint statement by the two sides in favor of a formal end to the Korean War and the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula.
Moon earns the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts, Lee wrote in her note.
She would know something or two of them. Her husband organized the first inter-Korean summit in 2000 and won the Nobel Peace Prize. However, Kim Dae-jung's performance was severely impaired when it turned out that he had awarded $ 500 million to Kim Jong Il, the then North Korean leader.
Lee traveled to Pyongyang Jong Il's funeral for Kim in 2011 and met his son Kim Jong Un – in short – at that time.
Moon told his staff about their note at a meeting on Monday. Then he added, "President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize, the only thing we need is peace."
The comment was reported by the local media and confirmed by the President's Cabinet.
Moons approval rates – already refusing the South Korean tendency to overthrow the moment President is chosen – continued to rise after the summit.

In January, after Kim Jong Un said he was ready to talk to South Korea, Trump tweeted that it was because he, the American president, had been. strong, strong and ready to commit our total "power" against the north.
A few days later, Moon asked if that was true, "I give President Trump praises the fact that he has managed the inter-Korean talks, and I want to thank him for that, "said Moon at a New Year's conference in Seoul.
It turned out that Trump had asked Moon to declare him public It was an approach shared in East Asia.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe flattered Trump at playing golf and at burgers while Chinese President Xi Jinping welcomed him into Beijing, which was fit for a king.
But Moon particularly needs Trump to invest in the nascent Bem relationships to engage the North Korean leader.
Moon hosted Kim on the southern side of the demilitarized zone between the two Koreas on Friday for a summit that should lay the groundwork for a meeting between Trump and Kim.
The timing and location has not been set, but the meeting is expected to take place in late May or early June.
Moon is scheduled to travel to Washington in mid-May after a trilateral meeting with Abe and Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang. May 9 to inform Trump about his own meeting with Kim
