Srinagar 28 April :
North and South Korea on Friday agreed to sign a peace treaty to end the 65-year-long Korean war. “There will be no more war on the Korean Peninsula and a new era of peace has begun,” the two countries said.
The decisions follow a historic meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
I am happy to meet you,” a smiling Moon told Kim Jong-un before the visitor stepped over the concrete blocks, making him the first North Korean leader to set foot in the South since the Korean War ended in an armistice 65 years ago.
At Kim’s invitation the two men briefly crossed hand-in-hand into the North before walking to the Peace House building on the southern side of the truce village of Panmunjom for the summit — only the third of its kind since hostilities ceased in 1953.
