South Korea intelligence
Seal of South Korean’s National Intelligence Service

In an exclusive analysis for Deep States, journalist Timothy Shorrock explained last how the  South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) viewed the U.S. presidential election. The NIS, Shorrock reported. plays a key role in President Moon Jae-in’s peace and denuclearization agenda. Shorrock predicted this role would continue regardless of who won the White House.

And so it has: the NIS is now promoting the idea of using the delayed Tokyo Olympic games as a venue for diplomacy with North Korea.

The Tokyo Olympics was also among the main topics during a recent visit to Japan by Rep. Kim Jin-pyo of the ruling Democratic Party of Korea (DPK). Kim, who leads the Korea-Japan Parliamentarians’ Union, has said that the Japanese side is willing to invite the North Korean leader to the Olympics should Kim show a favorable reaction to participating. Rep. Kim was the latest high-level figure from South Korea to meet with new Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga on Nov. 13 in Tokyo, after National Intelligence Service chief Park Jie-won met Suga on Nov. 10.
