The Koreans need to resolve their differences for a happy re-union
The leaders of North and South Korea, capitalising on progress made in the resolution of North’s nuclear imbroglio, plan to meet for the second-ever summit to iron out their differences. North Korean leader Kim Jong II will host South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun from August 28-30 in Pyongyang. Earlier during the first North-South summit, Kim had met the then-South Korean President Kim Dae-Jung in June 2000, also in Pyongyang. North and South Korea remain at war (at least technically) since the Korean War of 1953-54 ended in a ceasefire, & not as a peace treaty as widely perceived. Nevertheless, the earlier summit in 2000 coerced them to look forward on economic cooperation projects & stage reunions of thousands of relatives split by their shared border, which sadly is counted as the most heavily fortified & mine infested in the world. During the current summit, discussions might take place on a possible resolution of the 54-year-old cease-fire.
Pyongyang views the nuclear issue as a dispute solely with Washington, therefore it has refrained from getting into any confrontation with South Korea. Talking to B&E, Jeong Jae Sung, Political Editor of the Kim Jung Daily said, “The atmosphere of dialogue in N-Korea-US relations has been elevated after the departure of the Bush administration more than any other time. Meanwhile, N-Korea- China & North Korea-Russia relations have been speedily improving through economic cooperation.” With the Summit talks as a foothold; attention is being paid to getting North Korea into the international mainstream.
