SEOUL (AFP) - Seven in 10 South Koreans see nuclear-armed North Korea as a threat, a survey showed Sunday, amid little progress reported in reviving disarmament talks on the communist state. The Souths state-run Korea Institute for National Unification said a survey conducted on 1,000 adults nationwide last November showed that 70 percent of them regard the Norths nuclear arms to be a threat to their safety. The poll shows nearly 12 percent of them take the Norths nuclear threat very seriously with 58 percent perceiving danger to some extent. But 30 percent see no threat in the nuclear-armed North, it said. The survey showed 84 percent support a proposed grand bargain or a package deal where a security guarantee and international aid should be offered to the North in exchange for a complete and verifiable denuclearisation. The North has been under growing int'l pressure to return to the six-party N-disarmament talks since it quit last April. Chinese and DPRK nuclear negotiators held talks earlier this month apparently to help resume the forum, but no progress was reported. The communist state, which tested atomic weapons in October 2006 and May 2009, has set two conditions for resuming the nuclear dialogue: the lifting of UN sanctions and a US commitment to discuss a formal peace treaty. But the United States, South Korea and Japan has said North Korea must return unconditionally and show commitment to scrapping its nuclear programme before other issues are dealt with.
