SEOUL, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday expressed his optimistic view over the relations between South Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) although the deadlocked talks between the DPRK and the United States brought difficulties to the inter-Korean ties.

Moon made the remarks in his televised New Year's press conference in the presidential Blue House, saying that although the inter-Korean relations were faced with difficulties because of the stalled DPRK-U.S. dialogue, efforts were being made to expand inter-Korean cooperation through dialogues.

The president said his government is optimistic that things would go well sufficiently.
