The Korean War is officially over. The leaders of North and South Korea made the announcement today after Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in held a summit that marked the first visit to the South by a North Korean leader since the start of the war in 1950. Even though active fighting ended in 1953, the two nations remained technically at war having signed only an armistice, not a peace treaty. They issued a joint statement today declaring their determination to create “permanent” and “solid” peace on the Korean Peninsula. The history-making move comes ahead of an expected meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un in either late May or June.
