April 2018 Inter-Korean Summit: Two Years On
World Ch. Schedule : KST
Date : 2020-04-27
Two years ago on April 27th, 2018, the entire world held its breath as the leader of North Korea made a historic crossing into the South for the first time since the two Koreas were divided along the 38th parallel well over half a century prior.
The inter-Korean summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on that April day would lead to many first-evers. The first North Korea, U.S. summit, the first air travel by Kim Jong-un, the first visit by a South Korean leader to Mt. Baekdu.
Possibilities for engagement in 2018 hit an impasse after a failed North Korea, U.S. summit in Hanoi in 2019 which turned to a stalemate in 2020.
Two years since the April 27th summit at Panmunjeom.
Arirang News' chief anchor Connyoung Jennifer Moon reflects on the last two years and looks forward to the next two years in inter-Korean relations and North Korea, U.S. ties with Moon Chung-in, Special Adviser to the South Korean President for Unification, Diplomacy, and National Security on Arirang Special 'April 2018 Inter-Korean Summit: Two Years On.'
