South Korea: We wanted an 'Olympics of Peace' - President Moon Jae-in

"I believe these Olympics have been very moving, not only for Koreans but for the people of the world," said South Korean President Moon Jae-in during a surprise visit to the Main Press Centre for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang on Saturday.

"We were to make this the Olympics of peace. First of all, due to North Korea's participation in the winter Olympic Games we were able to lower some of the tensions that were becoming very heated in the Korea Peninsula. As a result, I believe we were able to host a very safe Winter Olympics," the South Korean President told journalists during an impromptu chat.

Moon Jae-in also added that he hoped that the "many achievements" in advancing inter-Korean talks would eventually lead to a better common sense and the possibility for dialogue between the United States and North Korea, with the end goal of denuclearisation on the peninsula.
