Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will TRIPLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go three times as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Asian Leaders Urge U.S. & North Korea to Move Toward Peace

HeadlineDec 24, 2019

In China, leaders from Japan, China and South Korea are meeting today in the southwestern city of Chengdu to discuss regional cooperation and reducing tensions on the Korean Peninsula. The meeting comes as North Korea has threatened the United States with a “Christmas gift” if the U.S. doesn’t lift the economic sanctions against North Korea. During today’s meeting, South Korean President Moon Jae-in encouraged North Korea and the U.S. to work toward peace.

President Moon Jae-in: “We agreed that peace on the Korean Peninsula was in the common interest of the three countries. We also agreed to make efforts together to help promote North Korea-U.S. dialogue for denuclearization and peace.”
