Good news for the world it seems.


Sept. 14, 2018

SEOUL, South Korea — North and South Korea on Friday opened their first joint liaison office, a facility that will be staffed by personnel from both countries, marking another advance in the rival states’ rapidly improving relationship.

The liaison office, in the North Korean border town of Kaesong, establishes the first channel for full-time, person-to-person contact between the Koreas. The countries have technically been at war for decades because an armistice, not a peace treaty, halted the Korean War in 1953.

South Korean officials consider the office another important step toward ending decades of enmity and hope it will eventually lead to the establishment of diplomatic missions in each other’s capitals.

They said the new facility would reduce the chances of dangerous misunderstandings along the heavily armed inter-Korean border. It will also serve as a venue for meetings as the two countries consider joint economic projects and other matters, they said.



“From today, South and North Korea can hold face-to-face discussions 24 hours a day and every day of the year on matters concerning improving inter-Korean ties and promoting peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula,” Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, the South Korean official who oversees relations with the North, said during a speech in Kaesong, according to pool reports from South Korean journalists there.



South Korea has dismissed concerns that it is opening up to the North too quickly, and that it should insist on more concrete steps toward denuclearization in return. Mr. Moon argues that improving inter-Korean ties will encourage, not deter, the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.


Let's hope Kim Jong-un do not take any steps back and keep moving towards denuclearization. We've had enough conflicts already.

Just thought you guys wanted to hear some good news for today.

Trump factor is so amazing.

He's moving the world to peace, even with all the people attacking him 24/7

Unless you want to say this just happened, under Trump, like the economy roaring, and the unemployment rate dropping

A couple of months ago it was peace on the peninsula, no nukes and someone was going to get the Nobel peace prize.

What happened.

I guess things take more time than previously planned. You don't think this is great news?

Should we just go back in time then to when there were missiles flying over Japan?

I really don't get you guys, praising a war instead of being happy for what we're witnessing.

progress is good, so is peace. Giving someone credit where not due is crap.

I bet the progress is due to NK leader, not President Trump.

F# OFF with giving Trump credit for this.

You people are as bad as the leftists you hate.


Oh look... Triggered!!!!!

Who else would you give credit for this... Santa Claus, perhaps?

All the work that Obama did to get us to this point?

And for the record, we don't "hate" the left.

We pity them, mostly. However, just like any other spoiled child, you don't get rewarded for being wrong.

To the OP, wonderful news! I am feeling better and better about Trump's foreign policy.

S&F!

Anything Trump does that is good makes the left look bad.

That's all it really is, since the left now appear to not give a crap about US citizens, world peace or a stable economy.

No... they just want to stay in power and it looks like they are losing their grip.

This is good news for everyone. And in a way you could give Trump some credit for this. But some users to give him complete credit and others to discredit him are both stupid. His threats very possibly made the NK regime rethink their stance. Also the secret meetings between NK, Japan and SK are what really made this happen.

I am sure China had a big part also along with Russia. Seeings how they both want us out of that very specific region even though NK was a great distraction at a time but not so much anymore.
