WEB Notes: We just discussed the possibility of peace between North Korea and the world. Today, we are a step closer to that reality as the leaders of North and South Korea made a historic pledge for peace. To remove nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula. You can see this historic moment in the video below…
You will note in the video Kim Jung Un shakes the hand of the South Korean leader as they stand on each side of their own border. Kim takes a step over to the South and the two leaders speak for a moment. Then you can see Kim tell the South Korean leader to step on the North side and they both go together holding hands.
Truly an amazing moment.
Will it stand?
Time will tell, but we have never been this close to peace between the two nations. As Christ would say, “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh“, (Luke 21:28).
The leaders of North and South Korea embraced on Friday after pledging to work for the “complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula”, on a day of smiles and handshakes at the first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade.
The two Koreas announced they would work with the United States and China this year to declare an official end to the 1950s Korean War and seek an agreement to establish “permanent” and “solid” peace.
The declaration included promises to pursue phased arms reduction, cease hostile acts, transform their fortified border into a peace zone and seek multilateral talks with other countries including the United States.
“The two leaders declare before our people of 80 million and the entire world there will be no more war on the Korean peninsula and a new age of peace has begun,” the two sides.
