Two Koreas make peace in spite of the US


The first meeting of representatives of North and South Korea since 2015 began in the border village of Panmunjom. Heads of delegations met in the so-called "truce village", at the center of which the border between the two countries runs. 

The main issue of the talks was the ways to improve long-term relationships and the possible participation of athletes from the DPRK in the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, which will begin on February 9.


Is it the thaw we all wanted for so long?

Korean media reported that the parties agreed to resume full-fledged work of the hotline between the armed forces of the two states. Its main goal is to prevent an aggravation of the situation in the region. The mere fact that Pyongyang and Seoul have moved from direct information confrontation to dialogue and cautious cooperation shows that the most acute phase has passed. By itself, the conflict is fueled by external forces, primarily by the United States, and both parts of the divided Korean people do not want war.
