One of the amazing facts about the Korean War is that the armistice agreement of 1950 ended ‘all acts of armed forces’ by creating a demilitarized zone. But the agreement couldn’t ensure an absolute peace treaty to reunite North and South Korea politically. The following years marred both the nations with border skirmishes and complete immobility in the demilitarized zone.

A summit was planned in the bordering village of Pyongyang, where the two leaders marked the beginning of a new era by crossing the walls dividing Korean peninsula. This harmonious act of North and South Korea comes to peace talks and paved a path for peaceful Korean relationship with prospect of progress. The historical visit of Mr. Kim comes as one of the surprising facts about north and South Korea war, making him the first one of the North Korean leader to step in the southern peninsula of Pyongyang ever after the armistice (cease-fire) settlement between North and South.

Mr. Moon later said that he would like to see South Korea in the driver’s seat in pushing a peace effort for the two nations.
South Korea and U.S. convince North Korea for complete demilitarization
North and South Korean war has been of national Importance ever since it began therefore, South Korea itself can’t singlehandedly end the Korean War and denuclearize North Korea. The North and South Korean peace talk hinted toward a trilateral and four-party talk with US and China respectively. South Korea and US is trying to convince North Korea to agree to complete demilitarization in a specific time period.
Opinions of critics on the Korean conflict
Skeptics believe that the North Korea’s prevailing habit of thwarting agreements would continue and the new deal will be eventually scraped. But South Korean analysts have considered it too early to analyze and are willing to give the leader benefit of doubt with some caution.
Even though the collaborative attempt of both the Korean Peninsulas have not demonstrated fruitful results but the diplomatic talk itself has carved a phenomenal space in the history of peace-making. Global leaders like Trump and Xi Jinping tweeted in favor of North and South Korean open peace talks just after the news got aired. Mr. Kim showed his support for the event by proposing another summit with South Korea with a visit to the presidential Blue House in Seoul.
