Kim Jong-un Wrote In South Korea’s Guestbook–Here’s What It Says

Kim Jong-Un, incumbent supreme leader of North Korea, has made a diplomatic mission to South Korea to engage in unheard of peace talks with South Korean President Moon Jae in.

This is so newsworthy because since the beginning of the Cold War following Japan’s surrender to the allies in World War II, North and South Korea have been mortal enemies.  Kim Il-Sung became supreme leader of Soviet-controlled North Korea, while Syngman Rhee, who was educated under anti-communist propoganda in the United States, became the first leader of South Korea under United States control.

The talk of peace and reunification is quite literally unheard of.

Moon Jae In and Kim Jong-Un hope to sign a treaty to formally bring the end of the Korean war.  President Moon has a special connection to the Korean War–his parents having fled the North during the height of its destruction.

Kim Jong-Un was seen on Thursday, April 26th, 2018 in South Korea’s peace house with president Moon, where he reportedly signed the guestbook.

As talks of peace close in, it is fitting then that Kim Jong-Un’s message was, in fact, a peaceful one.

We are optimistic for a peaceful outcome, though our fear of North Korea’s relationship with President Trump certainly has not tempered.
