SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se said on Wednesday that he believed Donald Trump would maintain the current U.S. policy of pressuring North Korea over its nuclear and missile tests, if he wins the presidential election.
"Candidate Trump has expressed his clear position by saying after North Korea's nuclear test that such provocation by the North is a direct threat to the United States," Yun said.
He made the comments in a meeting with members of parliament scheduled to discuss the results of the U.S. presidential election. The North conducted its fourth and fifth nuclear tests in January and September, drawing widespread international condemnation.
