North and South Korea to Announce OFFICIAL END of Korean War

North and South Korea to Announce OFFICIAL END of Korean War”

Nearly seven decades of war might finally reach a symbolic conclusion later this month, according to the South Korean newspaper Munhwa Ilbo.

North and South Korea are discussing plans to formally end the 65-year-old conflict between the two countries, South Korean newspaper Munhwa Ilbo reported Tuesday, citing an unidentified senior government official with knowledge of diplomacy and security issues.

A possible meeting between the nations was originally the product of South Korea's efforts in February during the Winter Olympics.

As the Korean War concluded with a ceasefire agreement and not a peace treaty, the two sides have technically been at war for decades, but the leaders of the North and South are expected to negotiate a joint statement in pursuit of a permanent peace on the Korean Peninsula. The two sides have aimed guns and propaganda speakers at each other otherwise, with the North particularly objecting to the presence of US troops in the South. When the two leaders meet on April 27, they would theoretically have to hash out several issues, from the submarines on the peninsula's coasts to the US military presence.

An upcoming meeting between Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in could result in a peaceful end to the Korean War.

While many USA officials are skeptical about North Korea following through with any formal meeting, supporters of diplomacy say that even the prospect of talks is an encouraging change. The U.S. president and North Korean leader are poised to hold talks in late May or June, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

The summit between Kim and Moon Jae-in will set the stage for the North Korean dictator's meeting with President Trump next month; the first time the leaders of North Korea and the United States will meet face-to-face.

While North Korea says it is committed to denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, it seems unlikely that Kim will forfeit the weapons ensuring regime survival.
