While the Trump administration is insisting that the military option is the “only one thing” that will work with regard to Pyongyang, Kancho Stoychev of the pollster Gallup told Radio Sputnik that South Koreans still favor a diplomatic solution of the crisis despite North Korea’s increased missile tests. The expert lauded the stance as “mature.”

Regardless of the saber-rattling and muscle-flexing on the part of their northern neighbor, most South Koreans favor diplomacy over using the military in dealing with Pyongyang, Kancho Stoychev, chairman of the Zurich-based Gallup International Association, told Radio Sputnik.

“They understand better than we that the North Korean regime is bluffing, this regime has always been bluffing,” the expert said, “This is a mature attitude from the people [of the country] neighboring [North Korea], who are living just a few dozen kilometers from the threat.”

He stressed that he was positively surprised by the attitude of the people of South Korea, who remain calm and open to dialogue with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) while being “threatened to the highest possible degree.”
