SEOUL, Aug. 27 (UPI) — North Koreans resettled in the South are viewing diplomatic engagement with the Kim Jong Un regime more favorably then they did a few months ago — before South Korean President Moon Jae-in met with the North Korean leader during a historic summit in Panmunjom.

Jeong-cheol, a North Korean defector who spoke of his experiences during a speech competition hosted by Seoul-based Teach North Korean Refugees on Saturday, said many North Korea watchers are too preoccupied with politics and the North’s weapons program.
