South Korean leader says North has ‘too many nukes’ to destroy quickly

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Tuesday that North Korea has too many nuclear weapons to destroy quickly, adding that Pyongyang’s program is “developed.”

“If talks begin to resolve the North Korea nuclear issue, I feel it will be realistically difficult for North Korea to completely destroy its nuclear capabilities when their nuclear and missile arsenal are at a developed stage,” Moon said in a briefing.

“If so, North Korea’s nuclear program should be suspended, and negotiations could go on to pursue complete denuclearization.”
