For multiple decades, the world has witnessed tension between North and South Korea worsen to the point where nuclearization was threatened.

 

On April 27, 2018, an official peace treaty was signed, signifying the end of the Korean War.

 

The Korean War began in 1950 and ceased fire in 1953, but the war was never officially over due to the opposing agendas of each respective leader. Until now, the world has observed the unsettling peace between both sides of Korea.

 

History was made when North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un stepped into South Korea, making him the first North leader to set foot in the South. The meeting between both leaders began with a friendly handshake and lasted thirty minutes during which both parties discussed their terms of agreement.

 

According to The New York Times, both the North and South plan “to remove all nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula,” as well as the speakers, which blasted propaganda music into each side of the country. Jong-Un has even said he will be ending missile testing.

 

Despite the peace treaty signed, American soldiers will continue to be stationed in South Korea.

 

According to the BBC, “US troops stationed in South Korea are an issue regarding the alliance between South Korea and the United States.

Both leaders are aiming to heal relations and have discussed plans of “arranging a reunion later this year of families separated by the war,” reports the New York Times.
