North and South Korea to announce an official end to the war

Ahead of a summit next week between the two nations, North and South Korea are negotiating the details of a joint statement announcing an end to the military conflict.

Technically Pyongyang and Seoul have been at war since 1950-1953 Korean conflict which has now ended with a truce — not a peace treaty.

Even though geopolitical tensions have occasionally flared up since the armistice, to date both countries have managed to avoid another devastating conflict.

Ahead of a summit next week between North Korean premier Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, lawmakers from the neighbouring states were thought to be negotiating the details of a joint statement that could outline an end to the confrontation.

Kim and Moon might also discuss returning the heavily fortified demilitarized zone separating them to its original state, reported the daily newspaper Munhwa Ilbo.
