President Moon Jae-in called on the new head of the Supreme Court Monday to spearhead judicial reform and realize legal justice, noting the task can only be done by the judicial branch itself.

Moon is expected to invite the five major political parties' heads and floor leaders for the talks ahead of the upcoming Chuseok holiday, which kicks off Saturday.

The top office scheduled the meeting for Wednesday, which it said is the most appropriate day for President Moon to share with the parties the security situation on the Korean Peninsula and results of his recent participation in the UN General Assembly. Before departing for the United States, Moon issued a statement on September 17 expressing his desire to invite party leaders after returning from the UN General Assembly and said he would "seek discussion and cooperation on resolving national security and pending issues".

The main opposition Liberty Korea Party has 107 seats, while the splinter conservative Bareun Party controls 40 seats.

"Maintaining the principle of a peaceful resolution of the North Korean nuclear issue and assuring our people and the global community of such a principle is also important for our economic growth and the successful hosting of the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games", he added. At the same time, during his summit with Trump, the two leaders agreed that maintaining superior military capabilities to keep the North in check is critical.

North Korea staged its sixth and latest nuclear test on September 3, followed by a launch of an intermediate range ballistic missile across Japan's air space on September 15, which marked its 10th missile provocation since the Moon Jae-in administration took office in May.
