North Korean paper Minju Joson carried an article to laud leader Kim Jong Un as a peacemaker, elaborating his sincere efforts for peace.
A new era of peace has dawned on the Korean peninsula, which had been teetering on the brink of nuclear war until some months ago.
On April 27, 2018, inter-Korean summit meeting and talks were held in Panmunjom, resulting in the adoption of the Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Reunification of the Korean Peninsula.
On June 12, the first-ever DPRK-US summit meeting and talks took place in Singapore, and the leaders of the two countries signed a joint statement.
The new era of peace that has dawned by removing the threat of war on the Korean peninsula is by no means accidental. It is a precious fruition of Kim Jong Un’s warm love for his nation, peace-loving stand, firm determination to reunify his country, and his magnanimity and bold decision.
On January 1, 2018, when Kim Jong Un, Supreme Leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, was walking towards the rostrum to deliver a New Year address, his image on the screen attracted the world’s attention; he was wearing a light-coloured suit though it was a winter day. This reflected his will to tide over the grave situation and open a bright future. In his address, he fully expressed his warm affection for his nation and peace-loving stand by saying, that the north was willing to dispatch its delegation to the Winter Olympic Games to be held soon in south Korea and adopt other necessary measures, and that the authorities of the north and the south may meet together soon. This had a great, positive effect on achieving peace and security on the Korean peninsula and the world.
Kim Jong Un met south Korean President Moon Jae In at Panmunjom, symbolic of national division and confrontation, reached a consensus of views on the agenda items and signed the Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Reunification of the Korean Peninsula with his south Korean counterpart. This gave the international community a hope for the day when the Korean peninsula would be reunified peacefully.
And when he met US President Donald Trump in Singapore, held meaningful talks with him and signed a joint statement with him, the world people pictured in their minds the coming day of peace and security on the Korean peninsula and in the world.
It is true that the road to peace and security on the Korean peninsula is not free from obstacles; the distrust and hostility that had existed for decades would not disappear at once.
However, in accordance with Kim Jong Un’s unshakeable peace-loving stand, the DPRK is now implementing one after another the issues agreed at the Panmunjom summit and Singapore summit.
It had already demolished its nuclear test site in the northern region before the eyes of the world, and has so far suspended ICBM launching and all sorts of military exercises. And the returning of MIA remains of the US is in progress.
The ball of simultaneous action is now on the side of the US and south Korea; if they, on their part, take convincing measures on the issues agreed at the summits, it would mean they are making active contributions to achieving global peace and stabilization.
