S. Korea's ruling party stresses dialogue with DPRK to resolve Korean Peninsula issue

So we have to wonder what people directly South of Democratic People's Republic (North) Korea actually want to do to resolve their differences over the nuclear build up North of them. They are in the direct line of fire if there is any kind of military exchange. Whether they are pounded by conventional artillery or if they get a nuclear device, the death toll would be a staggering amount. They may lose millions of people. The destruction would be catastrophic. So unlike President Donald Trump, who sits comfortably in his office, with no real danger of being nuked or fired at, the leaders of South Korea have to deal with their own life or death scenario. The South Koreans hope that they can reach some kind of a dialogue and some kind of agreement.
President Trump, shoots off his mouth about starting a war with North Korea and some people are worried that he is serious. If he is serious we can count on a massive death toll and the massive destruction of much of both Koreas. Any nuclear attack will leave land contaminated for decades. With the US 21st Century-sophisticated-technological military this country will surely vanquish North Korea. But the cost in lives, the environment and property damage will be one of the most massive war casualties of the last 100 years.
Maybe that is why this article shows the leaders of South Korea looking for ways to avoid a war.  -សតិវ អតុ

From Xinhua:

SEOUL, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- Lawmakers of South Korea's ruling Democratic Party on Thursday stressed the importance for dialogue with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to resolve the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.
The emphasis on the peaceful resolution through dialogue came as the parliamentary inspection of the government kicked off. The first inspection session under the Moon Jae-in administration, which was inaugurated in May, would last for about three weeks.
Rep. Shim Jae-kwon of the Democratic Party, who serves in the parliamentary committeeof foreign affairs and re-unification, said in a press release that though sanctions and pressure are a necessary tool to deal with the nuclear and missile technologies of the DPRK, its eventual objective should be dialogue and negotiations.
Shim, the head of the committee, said inter-Korean dialogue would be needed at any cost, emphasizing the urgency in the restored hot line between South Korea and the DPRK under the current situations that tensions escalated on the peninsula.
