This image is more than just a gesture…, it’s about building trust between the two Koreas. Some interesting insights to note:
1. The Pyongyang Agreement is a step towards leading the two Koreas to peace and Mr Kim has agreed to allow International specialists to witness the dismantling of their ballistic missile capabilities (Tongchang-ri facility)
2. In return, South Korea has agreed to stop cross-border propaganda and focus on economic reforms, which is why President Moon was accompanied by CEO’s of Samsung and Hyundai at the last meeting
3. Professor John Delury from Yonsei University wrote in the New York Times that “we have all grown so accustomed to thinking about North Korea in terms of threat, that it takes some unthinking to see the possibilities”.
