    After 70 years of war, North Korea and South Korea have formally announced intentions to end the conflict between them. A replacement of the armistice which ended military operations, with a formal peace treaty, will be discussed in future meetings along with denuclearization.

    I hope south Korean people will be able to go to north Korea visit their family freely now (or north going south) without being shot to death.
    Maybe it could become a single country again, but that is another story. I don't see this coming soon.

    Can we just cancel the meeting between Un and Trump now? There's no way for him to make things better at this point, only worse.

    I'm calling bullshit, possibly a ploy for the North Koreans.

    Iran. John Bolton has had that country in his sights since GWB, and Trump wants to tear up the nuclear agreement we made with them.

    I hope this isn't just a Trojan horse. I'm just a pessimist.

    President Moon also credited him back in Jan too.

    Either Trump's gibberish translates poorly to Korean, or their leaders are just as batshit crazy as ours are. There's nothing to credit Trump with, he didn't negotiate peace between North and South. He was on a phone interview with Fox and Friends while these negotiations were going on, FFS.

    Actually, odds are they compliment Trump because they know that's his weak spot. Same thing Putin did. Compliment him once and you can sucker the US out of anything.

    That certainly seems to be part of the plan:

    Let's just hope they stick to their promises. If they do, this is a great step forward for everyone involved.

    You know, I'm far from being a Trump supporter, but in order to end this bipartisanship in the U.S., someday people will have to admit the other side can do things that have a positive impact.

    North Korea for the first time was confronted to an American president who had no problem threatening and bullying them in the first place, up to having the balls to meet Kim Jon Un in person (and even if that doesn't happen, it's still important). Trump shows muscles by default, and then offers to discuss (a businessman's gotta talk business...)
    And compared to the Americans, South Korea suddenly didn't sound that bad to talk to. North Korea wants to be known and respected as equals to the other international actors, and in a way, Trump did help with that.

    I might be completely wrong of course, but that's my interpretation of it, Trump helped... indirectly.
