END OF AN ERA: North and South Korea to Announce OFFICIAL END of Korean War

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.17.18

North and South Korean officials are prepared to announce an official end to the decades long Korean War this week; ending a military conflict between the two nations that have technically been at war since 1950.

According to CNBC, North and South Korean authorities are in talks to end hostilities ahead of next week’s historic meeting between communist dictator Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Lawmakers from the two countries are huddling in high-level talks to formalize a joint announcement officially ending the nearly 70-year conflict; discussing specific language that would end the “truce” that stopped the armed conflict and forge a lasting “peace treaty.”

“Pyongyang and Seoul have technically been at war since the 1950-1953 Korean conflict ended with a truce — and not a peace treaty. Geopolitical tensions have occasionally flared up since the armistice, although to date both countries have managed to avoid another devastating conflict,” writes CNBC.

The summit between Kim and Moon Jae-in will set the stage for the North Korean dictator’s meeting with President Trump next month; the first time the leaders of North Korea and the United States will meet face-to-face.

DOOMSDAY DELAY: Kim Hopes for SUCCESSFUL Olympics in South Korea

In a rare gesture of friendship and international cooperation, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un wished South Korea “success” in hosting the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympic Games; saying the competition goes “beyond all political division.”

According to the Los Angeles Times, the communist despot mentioned the games in his annual New Year’s Day address to the nation, adding that the hermit kingdom would soon dispatch a delegation to Seoul to coordinate sending North Korean athletes to compete in the international competition.

“The Winter Olympic Games that will be held soon in the South will be a good opportunity to display the status of the Korean nation and we sincerely wish that the event will be held with good results,” said Kim.

“We know about the political tensions on the Korean Peninsula,” added International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach. “The Olympic Games are about dialogue. They are a symbol of hope and peace.”

Tensions between the United States and North Korea are at an all-time high as Kim Jong Un continues to defy the international community and advance his weapons and missile programs.

Earlier this year, the communist nation was hit with crippling sanctions by the United Nations after North Korea launched an international ballistic missile capable of striking every major American city.

DOOMSDAY DELAY: Kim RE-OPENS COMMUNICATIONS with South Korea

North Korea surprisingly re-opened a pivotal hotline between the hermit kingdom and South Korea on Wednesday, enabling direct communication for the first time in two-years as the two nations ease tensions ahead of this year’s 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

The cross-border channel was first introduced in 1971 as a last-ditch effort to avoid yet another armed conflict on the Korean peninsula, but was shut down in recent years as the relationship between North Korea, South Korea, and the United States rapidly deteriorated.

The hotline sits in the “peace village” of Panmunjom, a ghost town that straddles the heavily fortified de-militarized zone between North and South Korea.

News of its restoration comes just days after North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un issued a rare statement of good will towards his neighbors south of the border, wishing them success as they prepare to host the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

“The Winter Olympic Games that will be held soon in the South will be a good opportunity to display the status of the Korean nation and we sincerely wish that the event will be held with good results,” said Kim.
