Moon Jae-in Gave Kim Jong-un Development Plan for Unified Korea

May 1, 2018 (EIRNS)—Developments for peace on the Korean Peninsula are moving along very quickly. According to a report by Sputnik, today’s issue of JoongAng Ilbo newspaper revealed that South Korean President Moon Jae-in handed a brochure and a flash drive with a plan for the economic development of the Korean Peninsula to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during their intra-Korean summit on April 27.

Many details are not available, but the plan sets denuclearization of North Korea as a precondition for its implementation. The plan also includes proposals for building power stations.

It is reported that Moon had suggested to Kim that his summit with President Donald Trump take place at demilitarized zone. Trump himself also suggested the DMZ on April 30. “There’s something I like about it,” Trump said,

“because you’re there, you’re actually there where if things work out there’s a great celebration to be had on the site, not in a third party country. The good news is, everybody wants us. It has the chance to be a big event ... personally I think it’s going to be a success. If it’s not a success, I will respectfully leave,”

he said.

Trump also said that Kim Jong-un has been “very open and very straightforward so far” in discussing the possibility of removing nuclear testing sites and halting the launching of ballistic missiles.
