Moon and Kim Will Discuss Denuclearization, Peace for Korean Peninsula

April 26, 2018 (EIRNS)—Tomorrow, April 27, will be the third summit between the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (D.P.R.K.) and the Republic of Korea (R.O.K.) in the border village of Panmunjom, where Kim Jong-un will become the first D.P.R.K. leader to set foot on R.O.K. soil since the Korean War ended in armistice in 1953. Kim will be greeted by R.O.K. President Moon Jae-in, according to the schedule released by the Seoul’s Cheong Wa Dae, known in English as the Blue House.

The Blue House has been preparing for the summit under the slogan of “Peace, a New Start.” Moon said at a summit preparation meeting, “Let’s make a new history of peace beyond division and confrontation.”

Meanwhile, a Chinese study of North Korea’s sixth nuclear test on Sept. 3, which allegedly triggered four earthquakes over the subsequent weeks revealed a collapse of the nuclear test site.

According to the scientists at the University of Science and Technology of China, the first of those seismic events was detected eight and a half minutes after the device went off and was “an onsite collapse toward the nuclear test center.”

“In view of the research findings that the North Korean nuclear test site at Mantapsan has collapsed, it is necessary to continue to monitor any leakage of radioactive materials that may have been caused by the collapse,”

the authors of the University of Science and Technology China paper wrote as reported by Sputnik International.

Chinese authorities have stated that they found no radiation risk from the samples collected along the border, Associated Press reported.
