While good news and a footstep in the right direction, there is still a mile to walk. Not to detract from this as it is very positive news, but those who expect N Korea to suddenly fall or embrace democracy or even open up their borders are in for a long, long wait.

Hard not to be happy anytime words like these are spoken

Next week at the summit: Kim Jung Un holds out his hand for a handshake, Moon Jae In stretches out his hand to reciprocate. Just as they're about to connect Kim pulls his hand back and does the "combing the side of my hair" thing and walks off.

North Korea and South Korea end war officially, NK ties anything the west wants to the removal of US forces from SK arguing that the war has ended a long time ago and has now officially ended as well. US won't leave, because they don't want to lose influence. China will be on NKs side, so will Russia. Trump will announce this as a victory on Twitter somehow. Just a prediction.

While this could be good, We'll see what the actual terms are. People saying "Well all it takes is the US accepting Peace", don't understand the political situation that is going on in Korea. It's not just the US influence, or military strategic point that the US has, although that is part of it. It is also tied to the fact that the North has wanted peace and "re-unification" for the past 15-20 year, under a couple conditions: 1. South Korea severs ties and any alliance with the US. 2. The immediate US removal of troops stationed in the south and removal of US bases. 3. North Korea will only denuclearize if the US does not just in North Korea, but in Japan as well. 4. Re-unification under the North Korean Regime. Those have been their demands for the past 15 years. People saying that the US has had plenty chances for discussion if they "just considered peace", have no idea what they are talking about or are a Russian bot. Pulling out of the South has more implications aside from losing influence in just South Korea. Japan has been more and more worried recently about Russian Influence and China, and moving out of South Korea and troops in Japan would leave our long time ally out to dry.

Clickbait. As a Korean I can assuredly tell you that is **NOT** what’s happening. Not a single Korean news source is hinting anything of the sort. And we know that North Korea would never declare the end of the war, when it is virtually the ONLY thing keeping its citizens under control.

I will hesitantly say yay.

I know this won't happen but it would be nice if they left the border zone as a nature reserve. Apparently 70 years of no humans and it has become an animal refuge wonderland.

Huge if true
17 Apr 2018 19:53 - +207
This is good news, yes?
17 Apr 2018 19:46 - +87
If its true, that's great. But having an agreement and "being in talks to work out an agreement" are two very, very different things.

As a person whose Roman Catholic grandparents were from today's North Korea before the Korean War (except for one), I feel so happy about this. Now it makes it easier for me and my mother to find her unknown uncles' and aunts' whereabouts in and around the North Korean port city of [Wonsan](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonsan). It's still eerie to think that I might have a lot of long lost relatives north of the DMZ.

I won't believe it until Ri Chun-hee announces it!!

It's going to be like the WWE. They are going to almost shake hands and then North Korea is going to do a Stone Cold stunner
