Moon Trying to Get Around the Sanctions

My name is Daniel. I was an English teacher in Seoul, South Korea, and am now a writer who has
published four books including South Korea: Our Story by Daniel Nardini.
                       It has become very clear now that South Korean President Moon Jae-in is trying to
restart the Kaesong Industrial Complex, move forward with infrastructural projects between North Korea
and South Korea, and yes “reform” the national pension fund so that elderly South Koreans will be
losing money to pay for these projects for helping North Korea. Meanwhile, North Korea has NOT
denuclearized in any way (if anything, satellite images are showing that North Korea is speeding up
the process), and North Korea has NOT turned over any of their nuclear weapons or missiles as had
been promised. Because of all this, the UN sanctions remain in place and with any luck will remain in
place. So, Moon is trying to figure out ways of making “exemptions” so that holes can be punched
into the sanctions. This is most likely what Moon will do when he goes to Pyongyang to talk to
Kim Jong-un at the next Inter-Korean Summit. In too many ways we are seeing a repeat of the failed
Sunshine Policy that had been tried back in the early and middle 2000’s. Then as now, North Korea
has not changed. It is still a threat to the world, it is still developing weapons of mass destruction, and
China and Russia are repeatedly violating UN sanctions because they want to keep North Korea alive.
What makes this so much sadder is that the Moon administration is not in step with the United States
which has protected South Korea for decades. Last year, South Korea had violated UN sanctions 52 
times by letting North Korean coal be brought into South Korea. There is no doubt that the Moon
administration knew this and did nothing. There is no doubt that the Moon administration is trying
to undermine the ROK_U.S. alliance and shift South Korea over to China.
