Moon op­ti­mistic on end of Korean War

Panay News - - SPORT -

SEOUL – South Korean Pres­i­dent Moon Jae-in has told the BBC that it is only a mat­ter of time be­fore the United States and North Korea de­clare an end to their state of war on the Korean penin­sula.

The war ended in 1953 with an armistice but a peace treaty was never signed.

Moon, a son of North Korean refugees, also said there could be more diplo­matic “bumps and bruises” as he tries to per­suade Kim Jong-un to give up his nu­clear weapons. But he de­scribed Kim as “can­did.” In an in­ter­view with the BBC’s Laura Bicker in Seoul he also said he hoped Euro­pean lead­ers would help him to me­di­ate be­tween Kim and US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump if ne­go­ti­a­tions stalled.
