  • The Korean War May Finally Be Coming To An End After Six Decades: Report

Though the original story is in Korean, the message is loud and clear regardless of language: North and South Korea might finally announce a peaceful, official ending to the Korean War that started in 1950.

Nearly seven decades of war might finally reach a symbolic conclusion later this month, according to the South Korean newspaper Munhwa Ilbo.

Now, at a meeting between North Korean Premier Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in next week, the two nations are expected to issue a statement that could declare an end to the war.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un greets a member of the special delegation of South Korea's President at a dinner in this photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on March 6, 2018.

A successful summit between Moon and Kim could pave the way for a meeting between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump - the first between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader.

According to Bloomberg, the Munhwa Ilbo report cites an unnamed South Korean official who said the upcoming summit between Kim Jong-un and South Korean president Moon Jae-in may result in a joint agreement to formally end the Korean War. "We expect the summit will confirm the denuclearisation will [of North Korea], and hope to have a comprehensive agreement with the North on the matter". "There also has to be a process of actually delivering the peace".

Kim announced earlier this year that he's willing to talk about giving up his nuclear weapons.

Peace between North and South Korea could even turn the DMZ back into a more traditional border.

The two Koreas agreed last month to install a hotline for their leaders to help defuse military tension and facilitate consultation. In 1953, an armistice was signed, technically putting an end to the Korean War, though the countries have been deadlocked ever since.

A direct phone line between Moon and Kim may be connected around Friday, Moon's chief of staff, Im Jong-seok, told a briefing Tuesday, adding that it hadn't been decided when they would hold their first conversation.

South Korea has stated that denuclearization could be a topic of discussion during the formal meeting of the nations.
