CIA director as Trump envoy had secret meeting with Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang
South Korean officials have discussed ways to formally end the Korean War with their counterparts in the United States and North Korea, officials in Seoul confirmed last week. The move comes amid thawing tensions on the Korean Peninsula and just days ahead of a 27 April meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and the South Korean President Moon Jae-in. Moon said, on 19 April, North Korea has expressed its commitment to “complete denuclearisation” of the Korean peninsula and is not seeking conditions. He added that big-picture agreements about denuclearisation, establishing a peace regime, and normalisation of relations between the two Koreas and the United States, should not be difficult to reach through summits between the North and South, and between the North and the United States.
