North and South Korea Reportedly Set to Officially End War

In the lead-up to the North-South summit, just the third in the last 20 years, a direct phone line between Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un might be established by the end of this week. They note North Korea has long said that "denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" should also include the withdrawal of the 28,500 USA troops in South Korea and a halt to annual U.S.

A directional sign bearing North Korean and USA flags is seen near the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas in Paju, South Korea, January 19, 2018.

An upcoming meeting between Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in could result in a peaceful end to the Korean War.

North and South Korea are in talks to announce a permanent end to the officially declared military conflict between the two countries, daily newspaper Munhwa Ilbo reported Tuesday, citing an unnamed South Korean official.

That is expected to be followed by a meeting between Kim and Trump in late May or early June, which would mark the first meeting between sitting leaders of the two countries. Kim also said he has no reason to possess nuclear weapons if he has a credible security guarantee and doesn't face outside military threats, according to the South Korean envoys.

The sanctions freeze any assets that those targeted have in U.S. jurisdictions and bar Americans from doing business with them. The commodity giant is one of Rusal's top shareholders and the biggest buyer of its metal, while Glasenberg sits on the board.

The visit came amid a flurry of diplomatic efforts by the North, starting a New Year speech in which Kim opened the door to participating in February's Winter Olympics in South Korea. Two previous meetings in 2000 and 2007 focused on political and economic issues.

American officials are still sceptical of Kim's sudden overtures, with Trump's pick for secretary of state, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, telling lawmakers last week that North Korea should not expect rewards from talks with the United States until it takes irreversible steps to give up its nuclear weapons.

"Without U.S. support and agreement, it will be hard to follow through on inter-Korean agreements".

Discussions are underway about live coverage of part of the meeting, Im said. South Korea never formally ended its war with North Korea, though the armed conflict ended with a cease-fire in 1953.
