WASHINGTON D.C. — Likely new South Korean President, Moon Jae-in, asked the United States to respect the sovereignty of South Korea.

"I don't believe the U.S. has the intention [to influence our election], but I do have some reservations," said Moon Jae-in during an interview withThe Washington Post.


Moon Jae-in is poised to win an election that will immediately set him at the head of the country, foregoing any transition process. The U.S. is a major ally of South Korea, but both countries are highly concerned with North Korea and the regime of Kim Jong-Un constantly developing the nuclear capability of the country. U.S. President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson have both expressed that the U.S. will stop at nothing to end nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula. Moon is a very liberal presidentthat is against the U.S. placing its THAAD missile system in the country as a safeguard against North Korea. Moonworries that it is for this reason the United States of America may try to circumvent the South Korean democratic process.

Current South Korean President, Park Geun-hye, agreed to have the missile system placed in South Korea. Many South Koreans believe that the missile system will make them more of a target for North Korea. Park was impeached in March and is now on trial for charges of bribery. Despite Korean wishes, the U.S. put the THAAD in place in the country.

"Would it happen this way in the United States? Could the administration make a unilateral decision without following democratic procedures, without ratification or agreement by Congress?" asked Moon.
