The Trump administration and its surrogates have interpreted the North Korean leader’s diplomatic turn as buckling to maximum pressure—in their narrative, unprecedented sanctions and the looming threat of war have brought Kim to heel. To many South Koreans and Korea watchers sympathetic to the Moon Jae-in government in Seoul, Kim has sought dialogue because of Moon’s diplomatic acumen; Moon has been able to broker peace and reconciliation between the two Koreas while keeping the United States from attacking the North.

History was made as North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in met for the first time on Friday morning, greeting each other with wide smiles in Panmunjom in the demilitarised zone separating their two countries. The meeting on the southern side of the truce village of Panmunjom - only the third of its kind since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War - will be the highest-level encounter yet in a whirlwind of nuclear diplomacy, and is intended to pave the way for a much-anticipated encounter between the North Korean leader and US President Donald Trump. Kim emerged from the Panmungak building on the North side, at … [Read more...] about Kim Jong-un hails ‘new era of peace’ at historic summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in
