For the first time in decades the word peace has flowed freely between the leaders of the two nations on the Korean Peninsula. Following a successful summit in South Korea in April, the respective leaders of the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea issued the new Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification of the Korean Peninsula. But whether the agreement can deliver the lasting peace that the people of Korea and the world have dared to dream of in recent weeks still depends on how the U.S. approaches the much-anticipated summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un. Beijing Review Chief Commentator Liu Yunyun explains why despite progress, reconciliation in the region remains in Trump’s hands.
