Last Friday, the leaders of both Korean nations met together in a feel-good summit. They met to discuss the possibility of ending the korean conflict and denuclearization. Kim Jong Un is the first North Korean leader to cross the DMZ into South Korea. A survey taken on the day of the summit, revealed that 64.7 percent of South Korean citizens believed that the North will denuclearize and keep peace. Before, only 14.7 percent of those polled believed they would denuclearize.

“Denuclearizing is definitely possible,” said 41-year-old Kim Jin-han. The North Korean leader “talked about his country’s weaknesses, such as the infrastructure. He was very open about that. This is very different from the previous leaders. So I think he is ready to wholly give up nuclear weapons.” The Korean Conflict has been ongoing since the end of the Korean War in 1953. It would be a historical moment.
