It was a remarkable moment when DPRK leader Kim Jong Un met with ROK President Moon Jae-in Friday in the demilitarized zone for the Inter-Korean Summit.
The leaders at times acted like old friends and pledged to work for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and pursue talks with the United States and China to bring an official end to the Korean War.
CGTN’s Jack Barton reports from the Demilitarized Zone.
To discuss the historic summit:
- Tong Zhao is a nuclear policy fellow with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
- Zhao Ma is an associate professor of Modern Chinese History and Culture at Washington University in St. Louis.
- Myung-koo Kang is a professor of political science at Baruch College of the City University of New York.
- Brian Becker is an analyst on U.S.-DPRK relations and has travelled to the DPRK numerous times.
