Diplomatic efforts for talks with N. Korea should be backed by ironclad alliance: U.S. senator

합참의장, 평창올림픽 앞서 미국 상하원 대표단 면담

A U.S. senator visiting the nation met with Joint Chiefs of Staff chair, Jeong Kyeong-doo, this morning.
Tammy Duckworth says dialogue between the two Koreas should be backed by a strong Seoul-Washington alliance,... with denuclearization being the ultimate objective.

"I think it is important to allow diplomatic talks to continue, but those talks cannot be successful if there's not a strong ironclad alliance between our two militaries, one that has been there for decades. I think that whatever we can do to continue talks, as long as it is clear those talks include a denuclearized peninsula, is important."

The democratic lawmaker pointed out... North Korean athletes participating in the winter games is a positive sign.
Jeong... told Duckworth and a congressman traveling with her, Ruben Gallego,... that the peaceful hosting of the Olympics and a lowering of regional tensions will contribute to efforts to denuclearize the Peninsula... and help bring peace and stability to the region.
Both sides reaffirmed the two nation's ironclad alliance and firm military posture.
