Modi, Moon Agree to Cooperate in Fight against Nuclear Proliferation

NEW DELHI – South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi pledged to cooperate to stop the proliferation of nuclear weapons during a meeting on Tuesday.

In a joint statement, Moon, who is on an official visit to India, and Modi welcomed the recent summits between North and South Korea, as well as those between Pyongyang and Washington, saying he hoped that the developments could lead to the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and herald a stable and lasting peace.

“We pledged to work together to prevent proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and delivery systems, particularly to terrorists and non-state actors,” the statement said.

In a joint press briefing, Modi said Moon deserved credit for maintaining and developing the peace process on the Korean peninsula.

“I congratulate President Moon for this progress,” Modi said after signing 11 memoranda of understanding with Seoul on cultural exchange, scientific research, biotechnology and telecommunications.

Moon thanked Modi for his support and said that the Indian prime minister had agreed to collaborate in maintaining peace in the peninsula.

New Delhi and Seoul agreed to expand economic cooperation in areas such smart cities, ports, highways and renewable energy.

The two countries aim to raise bilateral trade from the current $20 billion to $50 billion by 2030.

This is Moon’s first official visit to India; during his four-day trip, he has met the Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj and inaugurated a mobile phone factory of South Korean giant Samsung.
