How to tell a story

Last week, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announced he would suspend all nuclear testing and scrap one nuclear site (which could have been to cover the fact that one of their sites might have recently collapsed). Instead, his focus, he claims, will turn to economic growth and peace in advance of his upcoming summit with President Trump. 
Yesterday (Friday in Korea), Kim Jong Un crossed the DMZ (the military demarcation dividing the countries)—the first time any North Korean leader has done so—to meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. In an impromptu move, Kim invited Moon to cross into North Korea, which Moon did as he and Kim held hands. People across South Korea, many holding flags of one Korea, paused work or school to watch live coverage of the historic event. The two leaders agreed to denuclearization for a nuclear free Korean peninsula and a peace treaty by year’s end to end the 68-year Korean War.
Many are debating the sincerity of North Korea’s commitment, as they have made similar promises in the past. If this time proves different, it would be the most significant development in relations with North Korea since the beginning of the war in 1950.
Last November, we devoted a TLV Deep Dive to the history of and current circumstances in North Korea. In case you missed it and are curious about the context and consequence of our relations with North and South Korea today (and want to sound a little smarter the next time it comes up conversation), check it out.
