Protests in Seoul against North Korean Leaderís Possible Visit

SEOUL Ė Members of a conservative South Korean group held a rally in downtown Seoul on Friday to protest against the possible visit of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to the country.

The protesters shouted slogans urging the government not to allow the North Korean leader to visit the country.

They tore posters with Kimís picture and the North Korean flag to demonstrate their anger, he said.

The protest, organized by a nationalist group called the Taegukgi Revolution, was attended by around 50 people and comes amid demands by conservative politicians that Kim should first apologize for an attack in 2010 that killed some 50 people in South Korea.

Meanwhile, South Korean Unification Ministry spokesperson Baik Tae-hyun on Monday said that it was still possible for Kim to travel to Seoul before the end of the year for a fourth summit with President Moon Jae-in.

ďWe remain unchanged in our stance that (Kimís visit) will be possible and necessary before the end of this year,Ē Baik had said on Monday.

South Korea was preparing for the possible visit as agreed upon by Moon and Kim during their third summit in Pyongyang in September, he had added.

However, a tight schedule and stalled denuclearization talks between the United States and North Korean have apparently complicated the possibility of Kim visiting Seoul before the end of 2018.

According to some media reports, however, Kim has cleared his schedule for the visit, which could take place end of December, although there has been no official announcement from either government yet.

If Kimís visit did come about, he would be the first North Korean leader to set foot on South Korean soil.

Relations between the two Koreas have been strained since the end of the Korean War in 1953, which had ended with an armistice instead of a peace treaty.
