For Fabian Kretschmer, a journalist working for Germany's Deutsche Welle, the recent wave of changes on the Korean Peninsula has been awe-inspiring. He is especially receptive to the conciliatory mood between South and North Korea, having grown up in Berlin to watch the reunification of Germany. Up until last year, tensions had been running high between the two Koreas, and the view from abroad was that the Korean Peninsula was a dangerous destination to travel to. Following the first 2018 inter-Korean summit at Panmunjom, the world has closely followed the developments in cross-border ties, as well as North Korea-U.S. relations. Foreign journalists including Fabian, gathered at the press center during every summit to cover the story for their respective countries. With inter-Korean relations marking the highlight in this year's world of news, we get Fabian's perspective on how foreign journalists are viewing these developments.
