On the 10th, the South Korean government declared that North Korea should take real measures that can bring about improvement in the living conditions of the country's people.
A spokesperson for the Ministry of Unification, Kim Hyung Seok told a press briefing this morning, “North Korea should alleviate all the international community's concerns, including the nuclear problem, and take concrete steps to enhance the wellbeing of the people."
The spokesperson continued, “The government also knows that since the launching of the new leadership the trend has been toward discussion and review of concrete measures to give changes in the economic sector.”
However, “There has been no confirmation of any specific plans like those reported in the media.”
In essence, while the government takes a positive view of recent reformist talk, until concrete moves are visible and results can be seen it is thought much too early to comment.
