May U.S. and DPRK declare end of Korean War?
U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un could agree on a joint political statement declaring an end to the Korean War, when they meet in Hanoi later this week, spokesman for South Korea’s president Kim Eui-kyeom said.
"The possibility is open, Eui-kyeom said, referring to the results expected from the Trump-Kim summit meeting scheduled for February 27-28. "We still don’t know exactly what format the end-of-war declaration will take, but there is an ample possibility of North Korea and the United States agreeing to such a declaration," the New York Times cited him as saying.
The South Korean presidential spokesman added that an end-of-war declaration would not replace the 1953 Korean Armistice Agreement but rather serve as "an entrance point" for starting complex negotiations for replacing the armistice with a formal peace treaty.
