Korean leaders make commitment for peace

Today, the leaders of North Korea and South Korea had a historic meeting.

The New York Times: North and South Korean Leaders’ Own Words in Meeting at the DMZ

Kim Jong-un, the dictator of the North stepped into South Korea for the first time, to make a meeting with Moon Jae-in, the President of South Korea. They committed aiming to construct a peaceful relationship with both nations.

The North and South are now in a status of a cease-fire after the Korean war. But the leaders shared an opinion to develop an official termination of the war until the end of this year.

Their commitment also mentioned abandonment of nuclear weapons. But there is no concrete term or process described at this time.

Kim Jong-un will negotiate with Donald Trump soon. It is likely that he intends to make some important commitment as a reward to Trump.

On the other hand, Moon Jae-in is well known for friendliness to North Korea. As he was elected after Park's resignation and arrest, South Korean people seem to desire conversation rather than fight with the North.

Anyway, while Japan government is shaken by scandals of politicians and officials, the world is rapidly changing. I welcome peaceful future.
