Ahead of a summit next week between North Korean premier Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-In, lawmakers from the neighboring states were thought to be negotiating the details of a joint statement that could outline an end to the confrontation.

Pyongyang and Seoul have technically been at war since the 1950-1953 Korean conflict ended with a truce — and not a peace treaty.

North and South Korea are in talks to announce a permanent end to the officially declared military conflict between the two countries, daily newspaper Munhwa Ilbo reported Tuesday, citing an unnamed South Korean official.

Ahead of a summit next week between North Korean premier Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, lawmakers from the neighboring states were thought to be negotiating the details of a joint statement that could outline an end to the confrontation.

Kim and Moon could also discuss returning the heavily-fortified demilitarized zone separating them to its original state, the newspaper said.

Pyongyang and Seoul have technically been at war since the 1950-1953 Korean conflict ended with a truce — and not a peace treaty. Geopolitical tensions have occasionally flared up since the armistice, although to date both countries have managed to avoid another devastating conflict.

A successful summit between the Koreas later this month could help pave the way for a meeting between Kim and President Donald Trump. 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).

Trump is now going to restore the Soviet Union, give Taiwan back to China, unite Ireland, tow the Falkland Islands to just off the Cornish coast and create the republic of Catalonia.

Is there anything he can’t do? :wub:

He doesn’t need to read though. He is a genius and has worked out that Fox News will tell him everything he needs to know, which frees up his time for leading.

Makes sense to make peace with South Korea before declaring war on the USA

I'm a bit confused at how quick this is all happening.

Same here, I can't fathom why NK have suddenly 'ceased' their nuclear missile tests and now are seemingly wanting peace with the south - they've either been warned by China/US or are up to something and South Korea are being a bit naive to trust them.

They haven't said they're giving up their Nuclear Weapons.

Its entirely feasible that they are struggling either financially or materially and just want to buddy up to the local nations for reduced sanctions etc. As long as they can keep the regime running why would they care if they are friendly or hostile with the neighbours?

There's something going on behind the scenes that we're not privy to. I don't trust the DPRK one bit here.

One day, I know we'll meet again, under the Iron Sky...

I think it's more the guy in South Korean leader being very into peace and happy to sign a deal which few previous South Korean leaders would have been prepared to.
