Kim Jong-un's Visit to South Korea refers to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's visit to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in to discuss bringing a formal end to the Korean War in late April 2018.


On April 27th, 2018, Kim Jong-un traveled to South Korea to attend a summit meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. During the meeting, the two agreed to remove nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula over the course of the next year and declare an end to the Korean War, with each leader signing the Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification of the Korean Peninsula. The event marked the first time a North Korean leader had visited South Korea since the beginning of the Korean War.

So here is a timeline of how we got here:

-Trump becomes president, the fact that a mini cold war is going on as North Korea tries to build nuclear missiles that can hit the US.

-Trump and The "little rocket man" trade insults, as the US increases pressure on NK by increasing sanctions to an incredibly amount.

-China finally gets sick of NK's BS, goes along with the sanctions and helps put pressure on.

-Relations where tense. France was thinking about pulling from the Winter Olympics. So was Germany, Austria, and even America was thinking about it.
- And here is where it gets good. Basically North Korea phoned down and said they want to participate. The Koreas ended up participating as one team, Kim sent family down to watch the games, Trump sent Pence, and a bunch of symbolic peacy stuff happened.

That is when it turned around, Trump and Kim decided to speak with each other directly. Kim stopped testing nukes. This meeting happened, with Kim promising denuclearize and peace.

Trump has a very real chance of going down in history as the one who made peace between North and South Korea.

That isn't to say that everyone should get their hopes sky high. As many have said, a healthy bit of skepticism is always great. At the very least the future situation will be better than world leaders threatening to nuke each other.

To make it clear again, Donald J Trump has a very real chance of making one of the biggest peace deals in this millennia.
