Kim Jong UN “A new history begins now-at the starting point of History and the era of Peace
Kim Jong un wrote in the guest book at South Korea border “A new history begins now at the starting point of history and the era of peace. It is unclear if the North Korean dictator is serious but history has in fact been made. Kim is the first North Korean dictator to step foot in South Korea since the end of the Korean war in 1953.
President Trump tweeted later Friday, “KOREAN WAR TO END!” and said the United States “should be very proud of what is now taking place in Korea!” Both Koreas agreed to jointly push for talks this year with the United States and also potentially China to officially end the Korean War, which stopped with an armistice that never ended the war.
The President also thanked his good friend, President Xi of China for their help at the border of North Korea. Saying “without him it would have been a much longer, tougher, process!
Please do not forget the great help that my good friend, President Xi of China, has given to the United States, particularly at the Border of North Korea. Without him it would have been a much longer, tougher, process!

“I feel like I’m firing a flare at the starting line in the moment of (the two Koreas) writing a new history in North-South relations, peace and prosperity,” Kim told Moon as they sat at a table, which had been built so that exactly 2018 millimeters separated them, to begin their closed-door talks. Moon responded that there were high expectations that they produce an agreement that will be a “big gift to the entire Korean nation and every peace-loving person in the world.”
There are many skeptics that peace can be reached between the two Koreas. Kim even acknowledged the failed efforts of the past.
“We have reached big agreements before but were unable to fulfill them. … There are skeptical views on whether the meeting today will yield meaningful results,” Kim said. “If we maintain a firm will and proceed forward hand in hand, it will be impossible at least for things to get worse than they are now.”
Weather a new history begins or not is in the hands of Kim Jong Un. It is clear that the tough stance that President Trump has taken with the North Korean dictator has led him to this point. What he does with it will determine the history of his country.
