Denuclearize North Korea

Apart from the demining, the South Korean Ministry of Defense publicly announced that it suspended military exercises between its air force and that of the United States. with the aim of giving full support to the denuclearization of North Korea and thus bring peace to the peninsula.

Since human rights lawyer Moon Jae In came to power in South Korea, he has become an important mediator and peacemaker between Trump and Kim Jong Un. So much that the demining is historic because before Moon Jae was in front of South Korea, the military exercises between both Koreas was continuous to the point that they had to warn on loudspeakers that a military action was coming. This is how El Mundo de España reviews it.

The second is that Moon Jae In, has served as spokesman for his North Korean counterpart where he asked him to deliver a letter to the Pope to visit his country. This attitude of the South Korean leader will not only bring peace between the two Koreas but will prevent lives from being lost as there are no more conflicts or discrepancies between the two nations and could eventually cause North Korea to end its nuclear program and its population begins a route of integration to the world.
