[Asia News = Reporter Reakkana] WASHINGTON: Lee Soo-hyuck, revealed on Wednesday, South Korea and the United States are working closely together to restart the Korean Peninsula peace process, South Korea's ambassador to the U.S.

Lee said the countries are also discussing ways to bring North Korea back to the dialogue table that may include the provision of humanitarian assistance to the impoverished North. "(We) are discussing various ways to build trust such as the provision of humanitarian assistance to create a favorable condition for talks with North Korea," the South Korean diplomat said in a parliamentary audit. "South Korea and the United States are also closely discussing ways to restart the peace process for the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and establishment of peace," he added. Amb. Lee also said the U.S. understands what he called the rational purposefulness of seeking a formal end to the Korean War. 

Meanwhile, South Korean President Moon Jae-in proposed declaring a formal end to the 1950-53 war during the United Nations General Assembly held last month in New York, insisting the move could help kickstart the denuclearization of the North by providing some assurances to Pyongyang over its security. His remark comes amid views in South Korea that the country may consider nuclearization itself to counter the North's growing nuclear capability.
