THE TWO KOREAS CHOOSE TO EASE TENSION AT A HISTORICAL MEETING

The two Koreas have chosen to ease regional tension during the first high-level meeting they have held in more than two years.

It has been decided to reopen a line of military communication between the two countries during this meeting held in the militarized inter-Korean border.

It has also been agreed to facilitate North Korean participation in the Olympic Winter Games that are celebrated in February in the South Korean county of PyeongChang, and the regime has said in this sense that it intends to send to the event a mission integrated by high officials, cheerleaders and athletes.

On the other hand, the South has asked the North to hold more meetings to alleviate the cross-border military tension and also to resume the meetings of families separated by the war that confronted the two countries in the 50s, although at the moment, Pyongyang has not responded to neither of these two proposals.

In any case, the gestures exhibited by the two Koreas, which technically still remain at war, serve to appease the tension in Northeast Asia.

Tension on the Korean peninsula was a constant in 2017 with the continued testing of North Korean weapons and the belligerent tone with which the president of the United States, Donald Trump, responded to the Pyongyang regime.
