In his 2018 New Year's greetings, Kim Jong-un finally showed a willingness to improve inter-Korean relations.
President Moon Jae-in reciprocated this open attitude, opening up a window of dialogue between South and North Korea. From the inter-Korean talks to the regime's participation in the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, the path to reconciliation is quickly making progress.
Experts are of the opinion that North Korea is indeed willing to change the atmosphere between the South and the North, which has long stood cold and disconnected, especially with the North's decision to take part in the Winter Games.
The South Korean government is making preparations for dialogue between the U.S. and North Korea, so as to be able to maintain the platform for inter-Korean dialogue. It is also asking for the regime's cooperation for the reunion of inter-Korean families. The questions now left are: Will these plans come to fruition? And could this be the start of a new relationship on the Korean Peninsula?
In this year of 2018, the story of North Korea as seen from experts' point of view, in the fields of nuclear issues, foreign affairs, human rights, and society, unfolds now.
