Top South and North Korean leaders meet to discuss “peace treaty”

Kim Jong Un crosses the militarised border and holds talks with President Moon Jae In, that could set the foundation for the denuclearisation of the peninsula.

Long preparations have made it possible for South Korea’s Moon Jae In and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un to meet.



After the visit of Kim’s sister (Kim Yo-Jong) to the Winter Olympics in Seoul, today an “historic” meeting was held in the Demilitarized Zone, the border that divides the two Koreas since 1953.



As he crossed the border on Friday morning, Kim Jong Un became the first North Korean leader to step on South Korean soil.



Both leaders, followed by their diplomatic delegations, greeted each other enthusiastically and posed for the media.



 



PEACE AGREEMENT AND DENUCLEARISATION



While they met in person, the two leaders discussed ways to sign a definitive peace agreement to put an end to the Korean War, which finished ‘de facto’ in 1953, but was never officially corroborated in an official deal.



The relationship between the countries, and most importantly, the denuclearisation of North Korea, are also on the table.



“A new history starts now. An age of peace, from the starting point of history”, Kim Jong Un wrote in a commemorative guest book.



Moon said he hopes this meeting becomes and opportunity to “engage in frank talks and reach a bold agreement so that we may give a big gift to the entire Korean nation and every peace-loving person in the world”.



The last time the main political leaders of the two countries met was 11 years ago. The next key diplomatic meeting will be that of Kim Jong Un and President of the United States, Donald Trump.



North Korea tops the 2018 Open Doors World Watch List, and is the country in the world where it is most difficult to be a Christian.
