The end of the Korean War will be announced later this year, following an historic summit between the leaders of the two Koreas.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his North Korean counterpart, Kim Jong Un, signed the “Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification on the Korean Peninsula,” while standing in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) that has divided the two countries for more than six decades.
This is pretty huge. It doesn’t mean there won’t still be tensions in the area, but it is a great step in the right direction.
“The South and the North will work together to mitigate sharp military tensions on the Korean Peninsula and to substantially eliminate the danger of war,” the statement said.“The South and the North agreed to cease all hostilities against the other side, which are the source of military tensions and clashes in all areas including the ground, sea and air.”“The South and the North will actively cooperate to establish a permanent and well-established peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.”
Could this lead to North Korea becoming less isolationist? Hopefully. Would be so great for the North Korean people.
