Kim Jong-un has become the first North Korean leader to cross the military line that divides the Koreas, since the end of the Korean War in 1953.

He shook hands with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, ahead of their historic summit in the demilitarised zone (DMZ).

You can watch the story here.

The Koreas have also made a nuclear pledge after summit agreeing to work to rid the peninsula of nuclear weapons.

What do you make of this? Is this a good sign? Are you glad they've come to an arrangement? Will this have a positive impact?

I will eat my hat if this occurs. He would be utterly insane to give up his only guarantee that the US wont invade. If he knows only one thing it is that after Iraq and Libya the US's word is not to be trusted on matter such as this, with the example of Iran about to become a 3rd.

I agree, if he does not want his head chopped off or dragged through the streets, he will keep the nukes. Now, I do really hope that the calls for peace are real though and there is a formal end to the war, also an understanding that the nukes should not be pointed at South Korea. If anything, they should be an anti-US deterrent. N/S Korea need to co-operate with each other and build up a trust.. to become a modern and prosperous country overall (if they want to build up to unification and make their people happy).
