Speaking to the UN General Assembly last month, President Moon Jae-in proposed that two Koreas, the U.S. and China come together and declare an end to the Korean War. The U.S. said it is open to discussing the idea, but is taking a cautious stance out of concerns that it could be used by the North as leverage in nuclear talks. Meanwhile, North Korea is sending conflicting signals with repeated missile launches and an offer of dialogue to South Korea. It has also restored the communication lines with the South, which it cut off in Aug. In this week’s edition of Foreign Correspondents, we sit down with our panel of journalists to discuss how the parties involved are reacting to Moon’s proposal. An Arirang TV news reporter also joins us to shed light on why Seoul wants an official end to the Korean War and the level of public support for such declaration.
