south korean president will be in washington next week for a visit with president trump. he gave his first interview with the president, with our own norah o'donnell and she joins us from seoul. >> fascinating to be here on the ground and do reporting what is going to be a fundamental shift in policy in dealing with the north koreans. president moon told us that he believes the obama administration's policy of strategic patience was a failure in his words. so he wants to restart dialogue with the north koreans, the question is, how is that going to happen when kim jong-unpromised to make this country, south korea in his word a sea of fire. president trump called kim jong-un, a mad man with nuclear weapons. do you ie
2:41 am
madman? and why do you want to talk to a madman? >> translator: kim jong-unis not a rationale person. i would look to note that president trump once mentioned he is willing to talk with kim jong-un, over a burger, and a pin the he mentioned that it would be an honor to meet kim jong-un, i believe that president trump went further than i did. >> do you believe he likesburgers? >> most likely. maybe. >> most likely. so, i believe what kim jong-un, would want the most is to have a security guarantee for his regime. so there is a possibility that kim jong-un, continues to make the bluff with nuclear weapons programs but deep inside he is yearning or wanting dialogue. but in the end the only way to find out is to have a dialogue with north korea. >> let me ask you, it is the view of u.s.
2:42 am
north korea will likely test an icbm this year, would you aoppose a preemptive strike by the united states to take that out before the test? >> i believe when it comes to north korea's nuclear missile threats it is the republic of korea that is more dire. for the united states, the north korean threat is a future threat on the horizon. but for us a matter of life and death. when it comes to preemptive strike that you mention, i believe that this something we may, we can discuss at a later stage, when the threat has become even more urgent. >> is that your message for president trump when you meet with him at the white house? >> translator: so i believe that we will probably have such discussions. the two of us will both be in office and working together for the next five years. and the two of us also share the common goals of resolving north korean nuclear issue, a peace regime on the
2:43 am
in northeast asia. if two could pull together and accomplish common goals i believe this will be the most fruitful achievements we can achieve. during our terms in office. and i also believe that this will be the greatest diplomatic achievement for president trump as the well. >> you believe that his greatest diplomatic achievement will be what happens here on the korean peninsula? >> yes, that is because president trump mentioned that north korea was on the top of his priority list. and also, because this is something that all of the former u.s. administrations could not achieve. and so i highly commend president trump's placing such trait importance on the north korean nuclear issue. i also believe thanks to president trump's approach and attitude there is possibility of resolving this issue. >> you have promised to sit knee to knee, head-to-head with the north korean dictator. can you go to pyongyang this year? can you
2:44 am
>> translator: i certainly hope the conditions could become right for such dialogue before the end of the year. just because we believe the dialogue is necessary does not mean that we have to be impatient for dialogue. so, what i hope to achieve by the end of this year is to draw north korea out to the table for negotiation through the implementation of various and strong sanctions and pressure. >> you have laid out very am besh us goals. how can you achieve what others have been unable to achieve? >> translator: there was a time of when we got very close to achieving that goal. this is not my unilateral initiative. this is also an initiative that had been pursued by the united states in the past. >> you will ask president trump to renew that? >> if i have the opportunity. yes. >> we have learned that, otto warmbi warmbier, 22-year-old american student has the died. what are your thoughts on his
2:45 am
passing? >> translator: first of all i would look to convey my deepest condolenced to the bereaved family of mr. otto warmbier and the am scan people for the sorrow and shock they're suffering through. we can make speck laying there is were many unjust cruel treatments to mr. warmbier. and i strongly condemn cruel action buys north korea. today there are many korean nationals and american citizens detained in north korea the i also urge north korea to return these people to their families. >> senator john mccain has the said that, otto warmbier was murdered. by the kim jong-un, regime. do you believe the north koreans should be held responsible for his death? >> yes. this had happened while mr. warmbier was in the detention of north korean authorities. we cannot know for sure north korea killed mr. warmbier, but i believe it is quite clear that they have a heavy responsibility in the process that led to mr.
2:46 am
>> how does this -- affect your efforts to restart the dialogue with north korea? >> i believe me must now have the perception that north korea is an irrational regime. working with such a country we must achieve the goal of the complete dismantlement of north korea's nuclear program. >> how do you sit knee to knee as you promised with an irrational leader and negotiate. >> i believe that dialogue is necessary. we were unable to resolve the north korean nuclear issue through only the sanctions and pressure. >> the idea of engaging in dialogue with north koreans before they are denuclearized, is fundamentally at odd with long standing u.s. policy. so what are you going to say to president trump when you meet with him next week? >> translator: i bel
2:47 am
policy of the united states or that of president trump. it seems to me that president trump has the criticized the failed former policies of his predecessor administrations and on that pin the i have the same view as president trump. >> but it is not clear that even under president trump he will agree to allow you to negotiate with the north koreans without any preconditions? and you want to do that? you want to start a dialogue without any concessions by the north koreans? aren't you giving into them? >> ooh have never mentioned a dialogue with no preconditions whatsoever. i believe that first, we must vie for a freeze of north korea's nuclear and missile programs and then, as a second phase, try to achieve the complete dismantlement of north korea's nuclear program. i believe there are voices, supporting a step by step approach even within the united states. >> thank you, mr. president. thank you. thank you so much.
2:48 am
>> so, as you just heard there has been a lot of news made out of this interview. there has already been a diplomatic kerfufle ahead of moon's visit to meet with trump. one of his advisers in washington and suggested south korea would be willing to scale back military exercises with the u.s. so we asked president moon to claire niear tie that, is th concession on the table. he said it is not. >> the cbs "overnight news" will be right back.

south korean president will be in washington next week for a visit with president trump. he gave his first interview with the president, withour own norah o'donnell and she joins us from seoul. >> fascinating to be here on the ground and do reporting what is going to be a fundamental shift in policy in dealing with the north koreans. president moon told us that he believes the obama administration's policy of strategic patience was a failure in his words. so he wants to restart dialogue with the north koreans, the question is, how is that going to happen when kim jong-unpromised to make this country, south korea in his word a sea of fire. president trump called kim jong-un, a mad man with nuclear weapons.
3:41 am
do you abelieve that he is a madman? and why do you want to talk to a madman? >> translator: kim jong-unis not a rationale person. i would look to note that president trump once mentioned he is willing to talk with kim jong-un, over a burger, and a pin the he mentioned that it would be an honor to meet kim jong-un, i believe that president trump went further than i did. >> do you believe he likesburgers? >> most likely. maybe. >> most likely. so, i believe what kim jong-un, would want the most is to have a security guarantee for his regime. so there is a possibility that kim jong-un, continues to make the bluff with nuclear weapons programs but deep inside he is yearning or wanting dialogue. but in the end the only way to find out is to have a dialogue with north korea. >> let me ask you, it is the view of u.s. intelligence, that north korea will likely test an icbm this year, would you aoppose a preemptive strike by th
3:42 am
out before the test? >> i believe when it comes to north korea's nuclear missile threats it is the republic of korea that is more dire. for the united states, the north korean threat is a future threat on the horizon. but for us a matter of life and death. when it comes to preemptive strike that you mention, i believe that this something we may, we can discuss at a later stage, when the threat has become even more urgent. >> is that your message for president trump when you meet with him at the white house? >> translator: so i believe that we will probably have such discussions. the two of us will both be in office and working together for the next five years. and the two of us also share the common goals of resolving north korean nuclear issue, a peace regime on the korean peninsula and building peace and security in northeast asia. if two could pull together and accomplish common goals i
3:43 am
fruitful achievements we can achieve. during our terms in office. and i also believe that this will be the greatest diplomatic achievement for president trump as the well. >> you believe that his greatest diplomatic achievement will be what happens here on the korean peninsula? >> yes, that is because president trump mentioned that north korea was on the top of his priority list. and also, because this is something that all of the former u.s. administrations could not achieve. and so i highly commend president trump's placing such trait importance on the north korean nuclear issue. i also believe thanks to president trump's approach and attitude there is possibility of resolving this issue. >> you have promised to sit knee to knee, head-to-head with the
3:44 am
north korean dictator. can you go to pyongyang this year? can you meet with him this year? >> translator: i certainly hope the conditions could become right for such dialogue before the end of the year. just because we believe the dialogue is necessary does not mean that we have to be impatient for dialogue. so, what i hope to achieve by the end of this year is to draw north korea out to the table for negotiation through the implementation of various and strong sanctions and pressure. >> you have laid out very am besh us goals. how can you achieve what others have been unable to achieve? >> translator: there was a time of when we got very close to achieving that goal. this is not my unilateral initiative. this is also an initiative that had been pursued by the united states in the past. >> you will ask president trump to renew that? >> if i have the opportunity. yes. >> we have learned that, otto warmbier, 22-year-old american student has the died. what are your thoughts on his passing?
3:45 am
>> translator: first of all i would look to convey my deepest condolenced to the bereaved family of mr. otto warmbier and the am scan people for the sorrow and shock they're suffering through. we can make speck laying there is were many unjust cruel treatments to mr. warmbier. and i strongly condemn cruel action buys north korea. today there are many korean nationals and american citizens detained in north korea the i also urge north korea to return these people to their families. >> senator john mccain has the said that, otto warmbier was murdered. by the kim jong-un, regime. do you believe the north koreans should be held responsible for his death? >> yes. this had happened while mr. warmbier was in the detention of north korean authorities. we cannot know for sur
3:46 am
believe it is quite clear that they have a heavy responsibility in the process that led to mr. warmbier's death. >> how does this -- affect your efforts to restart the dialogue with north korea? >> i believe me must now have the perception that north korea is an irrational regime. working with such a country we must achieve the goal of the complete dismantlement of north korea's nuclear program. >> how do you sit knee to knee as you promised with an irrational leader and negotiate. >> i believe that dialogue is necessary. we were unable to resolve the north korean nuclear issue through only the sanctions and pressure. >> the idea of engaging in dialogue with north koreans before they are denuclearized, is fundamentally at odd with long standing u.s. policy. so what are you going to say to president trump when you meet with him next week? >> translator: i believe my position is not at odd with the policy of the united states or that of president trump. it seems to me that president trump has the criticized the
3:47 am
predecessor administrations and on that pin the i have the same view as president trump. >> but it is not clear that even under president trump he will agree to allow you to negotiate with the north koreans without any preconditions? and you want to do that? you want to start a dialogue without any concessions by the north koreans? aren't you giving into them? >> ooh have never mentioned a dialogue with no preconditions whatsoever. i believe that first, we must vie for a freeze of north korea's nuclear and missile programs and then, as a second phase, try to achieve the complete dismantlement of north korea's nuclear program. i believe there are voices, supporting a step by step approach even within the united states. >> thank you, mr. president. thank you. thank you so much. >> so, as you just heard there
3:48 am
has been a lot of news made out of this interview. there has already been a diplomatic kerfufle ahead of moon's visit to meet with trump. one of his advisers in washington and suggested south korea would be willing to scale back military exercises with the u.s. so we asked president moon to clear tie that, is that concession on the table. he said it is not. >> the cbs "overnight news" will be right back. it lifts more dirt and pet hair versus vacuuming alone. resolve carpet care with five times benefits so, your new prescription does have oh, like what?ects. ♪ you're gonna have dizziness, nausea, and sweaty eyelids. ♪
