Editor’s note:  What isn’t told in the American press is that South Korea’s American stooge president, Park Keun-hye is in jail for “Trump behavior” and this frightening new move toward peace and freedom is at the cost of America reliable stooge military puppet in the region. Trump wanted a new Vietnam in Korea and instead, it is likely that 30,000 American troops will get to come home to their families and get off the welfare rolls.

North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un has expressed his wish to end the history of confrontation on the Korean Peninsula, a spokesman of South Korea’s President Moon Jae-In said Friday.

According to a joint statement, issued after the talks between the two leaders, both Asian nations have agreed to hold talks with the US and China to replace the current ceasefire regime with a peace treaty.

The two countries have agreed to stop all hostile acts toward each other and to transform demilitarized zone into a peace zone, the declaration says.

“South and North Korea reaffirmed the Non-Aggression Agreement that precludes the use of force in any form against each other, and agreed to strictly adhere to this Agreement,” the document says.

The parties have also agreed to create a maritime peace zone around the Northern Limit Line in the Yellow Sea (West Sea) to prevent clashes and guarantee safety for fishermen.

The statement says further that the two leaders have agreed to gradually reduce arms in order to build trust and reduce military tensions in the region, adding that the country’s generals will hold a meeting in May to resolve a number of military issues.

“The two sides agreed to hold frequent meetings between military authorities, including the Defense Ministers Meeting, in order to immediately discuss and solve military issues that arise between them. In this regard, the two sides agreed to first convene military talks at the rank of general in May,” the document said.

The two Koreas have expressed their wish to improve relations, striving for prosperity and peaceful reunification.

“South and North Korea will reconnect the blood relations of the people and bring forward the future of co-prosperity and unification led by Koreans by facilitating comprehensive and groundbreaking advancement in inter-Korean relation,” the document says.

The improvement of relations is “the prevalent desire of the whole nation,” the parties added.

Kim Jong-un Promises Moon Jae-in to End Missile Tests

The issues of ridding the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons, building peace and improving relations between North and South Korea were on the agenda of their summit on Friday morning, Im Jong-seok confirmed to reporters.

“Both leaders at these talks held a sincere dialogue about the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, building a lasting peace and directions for the development of relations between the South and the North,” the spokesman said.

North Korea’s leader suggested holding regular summits during a meeting with South’s President Moon Jae-in, Im Jong-seok told reporters.

“Let us meet more often. Let us build a better world,” Im Jong-seok quoted Kim as saying at a briefing after the first round of talks ended in the border village of Panmunjom

According to Seoul, Kim told Moon that Pyongyang “won’t interrupt your early morning sleep anymore,” referring to missile tests.

Kim’s promise was then confirmed by a joint statement issued upon the end of the talks that said, the two Koreas would take measures to support international efforts aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

“South and North Korea confirmed the common goal of realizing, through complete denuclearization, a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula. South and North Korea shared the view that the measures being initiated by North Korea are very meaningful and crucial for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and agreed to carry out their respective roles and responsibilities in this regard,” the document added.

Moon, in his turn, offered, among other things, to link the railroads of the two countries and promised to visit the North in autumn.

“President Moon Jae-in agreed to visit Pyongyang this fall,” the document says.

The two leaders also exchanged invitations to each other’s capital cities, Im Jong-seok said, telling that Moon Jae-In expressed his interest in visiting North Korea’s holy mountain Paektu.

The summit is the third such encounter since the end of the 1950-1953 Korean War. It is being held on the southern side of the demilitarized zone but President Moon briefly stepped over onto the northern soil when the two met on Friday morning.

  1. A united Korea could also be a new direction in US policy. The cheap, tech-savvy labor of the North could provide replacement to goods from China. It could also focus on targeting China by asserting claims on Korean-dominated regions that were historically part of one of the Three Kingdoms.

  3. North Korea & South Korea are both City of London puppets. Kim’s probably in Switzerland as we speak… The theater’s ever more laughable. Between this ongoing, ridiculous diplomatic “crisis” & the never ending Royal tranny-fest, MSM is looking more preposterous with each passing day.

  4. Kim of North Korea proved that he was more of a diplomat than our Dotard Trump. While Dotard Trump threatened North Korea , Kim quietly with purpose went directly the President of South Korea and seems to have pulled off a complete agreement to have one sovereign country of KOREA???

    • Dotard has my vote for the best political name calling move of the decade thus far. At least 6 billion people laughed at that one, and it has staying power. Considering it came from an Asian leader gives it even more kudos. Also Trump has used less name calling since. Dotard was genius.

  5. Blessed be the Peace makers.
    To its dismay, the US, feeling like an unwanted guest, like a leper in a marketplace to be precise has no place in any venue of peace where the use of bully-grade intimidating and coersive force is considered a primitive form of human behavior.

  6. The ceremony of the tree, stone, and water, was very appropriate, and precisely on the perfect day.
    I’m sure the US will try to stay in the story, but it is really about the people of the peninsula and the reunification. The US is like an unwanted guest at this point.
    Asia is showing Americans how easy peace can be, and how stupid war is.
    Peace and reconciliation can be infectious, and inspirational, so humanity would be wise to capitalize on this and go with the flow. With the massive abundance the world has, only the spoiled and ignorant find cause for discontent. And of course, the only blemish comes from American evangelicals. The kid totally disrespected a foreign culture, and NK is not the only one who throws folks in jail for that. We should question the kids reasons for being there.
