At 9:30 am, April 27th, 2018, the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, came to Panmunjom, which is a small community along the boundary between North Korea and South Korea. So far, there are three ‘The South-North Summit meeting’ including this time. However, this is the first time when the president of North Korea came across the boundary. This truly shows that the war in Korea has not come to an end, but still on a ceasefire.
Through this meeting, the two presidents, Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in, talked about ending the war. The picture that the North Korean president crossing the boundary will be marked as one of the most important Korean in history. Also, the picture represents that the peace would come soon in Korea.
When Kim Jong-un visited Panmunjom, he wrote ‘A new history begins now. At the starting point of history and the era of peace’ on visitor’s book.
Not only good relationship between North and South Korea, but also that of North Korea and the United States can lead to the peace of Korea, and in a larger perspective, peace of the world. Therefore, North Korea and the U.S are planning to have a summit meeting on June 12th in Singapore.
