'Peace and prosperity': Korean leaders plan declaration after rare summit


Recommended Posts

SEOUL (Reuters) - Smiling and holding hands, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in met at the heavily fortified demilitarized zone between the countries on Friday, pledging to pursue peace after decades of conflict.

Kim became the first North Korean leader since the 1950-53 Korean War to set foot in South Korea after shaking hands with his counterpart over a concrete curb marking the border at the truce village of Panmunjom.


Scenes of Moon and Kim joking and walking together marked a striking contrast to last year’s barrage of North Korean missile tests and its largest ever nuclear test that led to sweeping international sanctions and fears of a fresh conflict on the Korean peninsula.


After a morning meeting discussing denuclearization, the leaders planted a tree and unveiled a monument engraved with “planting peace and prosperity”. The two then took a short walk along the border before sitting and talking on a wooden boardwalk.


Their dramatic meeting comes weeks before Kim is due to meet U.S. President Donald Trump to discuss denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.


We are at a starting line today, where a new history of peace, prosperity and inter-Korean relations is being written,” Kim said before the two Korean leaders and top aides began talks.

An interesting turn, but it's just Rocketman talking with Moon. Now, how will Emperor Kim III clear out to his 25 millions of subjects that South Korean and US soldiers don't eat little North Korean children on BBQ after skinning them alive and raping their mother and when will he recall math books explaining if 1 North Korean hero can kill 25 Us imperialist dogs, how many North Koreans are needed to kill 1200 US soldiers! Ohh.. and maybe he could revoke death penalty for listening K-pop (actually, I understand he said he likes K-pop!)
