Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un, the leaders of South and North Korea, have gathered together to reaffirmed their commitment for future peace between the two countries and complete the process of denuclearisation.
The historical meeting happened at the Joint Security Area of Panmunjeom and ended up with a declaration signed by the two leaders.
“The two leaders solemnly declared before the 80 million people of our nation and the entire world that there will be no more war on the Korean Peninsula and a new age of peace has opened,” they wrote in the declaration.
In the declaration they also reaffirmed their agreement of non-aggression and using any form of forces against each other.
Another very important statement, put in the declaration, was the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.
“The South and the North affirmed their mutual goal of realizing a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula through complete denuclearization,” said the realised statement.
The war which took place between 1950 to 1953, had ended up with an ongoing rivalry between the two nations.
