H03 korea meeting

Meanwhile, South Korean President Moon Jae-in says he’d be willing to sit down with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un. The potential meeting comes after high-level officials from North and South Korea met in the Demilitarized Zone between the two countries for the first official talks in more than two years. At the talks, North Korea said it would send a delegation to the Winter Olympic Games being held next month in South Korea. The diplomacy is seeking to de-escalate the threat of nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula, which has been largely sparked by President Trump’s repeated threats to launch a nuclear strike against North Korea.
