Direct negotiations between Pyongyang and Seoul

21
The news agency Ronkhan announces the start of the first in two years direct talks between representatives of South Korea and the DPRK. Negotiations are held at the ministerial level. One of the issues discussed is related to the possible participation of the North Korean team in the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, which will start next month.


Negotiations began around 4: 00 (MSK) at Pangmunzhong at the so-called "House of Peace" in the territory of the demilitarized zone. It is noted that the negotiation process is conducted in closed session. The North Korean side in the “House of Peace” is represented by the Chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Unification of the Motherland, Lee Sung Hwon, and the Republic of Korea is represented by the Minister of National Unification Affairs, Cho Cho Kyung.

Direct negotiations between Pyongyang and Seoul


It was noted earlier that the meeting will also deal with the de-escalation of tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

The negotiations themselves became possible after Kim Jong-un addressed the nation, who declared the need to focus on further strengthening North Korean security and simultaneously improving relations with the South. According to Kim Jong-un, the time has come to think about the need to unite the country.

Experts note that in Panmujong, the parties are likely to be able to agree on the participation of the DPRK winter sports team in the 2018 Olympiad. The likelihood of other agreements remains extremely low.

      Negotiations are at the ministerial level to unite Korea. Tu is not so important the Olympics, as the further progress towards the unification of one people. And this is a bad sign for the United States.

        and in Russia, move to a new position, with increasing

        unfortunately it's so to speak ...
        The peculiarities of the national service in the bureaucracy of officials ... ruined ... out of sight to increase, or in the worst case, attach to a greasy feeder at the budget of RUSSIA.

        even there you can stand up to the wall for not fulfilling the plan, sneezing into the portrait of the leader and trying to go abroad, etc. etc. this is from "discharge is good where we are not." I personally would be happy with the confiscation of property from corrupt officials + their relatives if the latter could not show where the "firewood" came from)
        and so in the DPRK it’s good, but at home it’s better all the same)))

        It seems they promise not to do this at the time of the Olympics ...
        but it can happen exactly the opposite.
        For the US State Department, the Olympics are the best time for provocations ... when people in the world relax in anticipation of spectacles, and here you have a dirty trick unleashing a war ...
        Let us recall how the USA gave the command to SAAKASHVILI FAS in 2008 ... or Maydanut in 2014 ... bad habits, you know ... it's hard for bad guys to refuse them.

    The best news in the Korean problem ... if only the Americans did not meet, they will spoil everything, putting forward impossible conditions in advance, and so you look and "the ice will break."

    The fact that they met speaks volumes. Everything will be fine, if the adviser does not start giving “advice”.

    about the beginning of the first in two years of direct negotiations
    To reach an agreement between the two Koreas, the only thing needed is South Korea to send the Americans away and not listen to their instructions. But, alas, this is still unattainable.

    This once again proves to the whole world that the real threat of war and the most terrible demons on earth are sitting in the US State Department and financial puppeteers and bubblers, behind their backs ....
