The first day of the inter-Korean summit after a decade ended up this Friday with promises of peace, wide smiles, and warm handshakes.
The summit looks like a great achievement if we think that just a year ago North Korean's largest nuclear test led to sweeping international sanctions and fears of war.
The leaders of North and South Korea commit today to working for the “complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula” but the biggest achievement of the day was their commitment to end the Korean War with an agreement on “permanent” and “solid” peace.
“The two leaders declare before our people of 80 million and the entire world, there will be no more war on the Korean peninsula and a new age of peace has begun,” the two leaders announced hours ago.
The announcement includes arms reduction, cease hostile acts, transforming their fortified border into a peace zone and seek multilateral talks with other countries including the United States.
Kim Jong Un is now the first North Korean leader who, after 65 years of Korean war stepped on the border of the strongly fortified demilitarized zone of South Korea.
Of my God, when the politicians commit to working for something right there my wondering goes wild... in this case is like, Why do they need to work for peace, as leaders they could just Declare Peace?
