On April 27, 2018, the two leaders of South and North Korea agreed on an incredible compromise that many believed was never going to be possible. Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un met and discussed a compromise at the border of the two countries, also known as the Peace House. This was the first time a member of the Kim Dynasty set foot on southern soil since the end of the Korean War. The major compromise the two leaders reached was the denuclearization of North Korea’s missiles. Denuclearization is the act of removing nuclear weapons from a country, region, or territory. It is also noteworthy that, “Kim Jong Un offered to stop nuclear testing without requiring the United States and South Korea to move their forces from the Korean Peninsula.” If what Kim Jong Un states becomes a reality, this will give the U.S. much more authority in the Korean Peninsula. Another topic these two powerful figures talked about was, “healing past scars.” They conversed about a possibility of connecting their railroad systems, which would mean that the two countries’ border line would have to be removed.

The most important part about this meeting was that South Korea focuses on not only the denuclearization of North Korea, but also on the ending of the ongoing Korean War. After North Korea invaded South Korea in 1950, the war never officially ended. If Kim Jong Un decides to conclude the war with a firm handshake, the two countries could very likely merge together for the first time.

North Korea had also stated that they would end their nuclear testing in June. Many doubt that this will happen, but it is definitely a great step towards a right cause. While this creates a sense of skepticism, many individuals see a bright road ahead for both North and South Korea.
