Peace in Korean Peninsula move

South Korea has stopped its cross-border propaganda broadcasts to the north, to harmonize with the growing atmosphere of “peace,” after Pyongyang announced a freeze of its nuclear and ballistic programs, ahead of a rare high-level inter-Korean summit this week. “We hope this decision will lead both Koreas to stop mutual criticism and propaganda against each other and also contribute in creating peace and a new beginning,” South Korea’s defense ministry said in a statement.

On Saturday, Pyongyang announced that it was suspending any further nuclear and missile tests and scrapping its nuclear test site, in order to focus on pursuing economic growth.

US President Donald Trump, who is due to meet with Kim Jong-un, welcomed the move, but emphasized that it was “a long way from conclusion” and more concessions will be required.
