Moon optimistic on end of Korean War
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.
