North and South Korea agreed to pursue signing a peace treaty and work towards “complete” denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. The two countries will hold talks with the US and China, and South Korean President Moon Jae-In will visit Pyongyang later this year. The two countries also agreed to begin holding joint holiday celebrations, resume family reunions, and end propaganda broadcasts. The agreement isn’t too surprising, and the success of the summit will come down to what the two Koreas are able to achieve next.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in have agreed to seek an end to the armistice agreement and sign a peace treaty, as well as achieve “complete” denuclearization. 

The announcement was made at the end of a historic day. Though it was the third Korean summit — the last occurred in 2007 — it marked the first time any leader of North Korea has set foot in South Korea.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
