  • North and South Korea may finally end the Korean War which started in 1950
  • A South Korean official on Wednesday said the country would consider negotiating a peace treaty with North Korea following the rogue state’s denuclearization, according to local news outlet Yonhap

The two Korean nations appear to be aiming at bringing an end to the six-decade-old conflict which started in 1950. Their peace treaty efforts have received the backing of US President Donald Trump.

A South Korean official said on Wednesday that the country would consider negotiating a peace treaty with North Korea following its denuclearization, according to Yonhap News Agency.

Seoul and Washington are holding “in-depth discussions on various ways to successfully hold the South-North Korea summit and the North Korea-U.S. summit that will be held shortly thereafter,” Chung Eui-yong, head of the presidential National Security Office told reporters.

“For instance, we are discussing how we could remove the (security) concerns held by North Korea. We have also held in-depth discussions on how we could guarantee the North’s bright future should the North make the right decision,” he added.

North Korea has ramped up its diplomatic efforts in 2018; headlined by an unprecedented presence at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang in February.
