    A step to unification?

    South Korea's Moon Jae In watches concert with Kim Jong Un's sister as protesters burn North's flag outside venue



    South Korean President Moon Jae In (right) talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sister Kim Yo Jong (centre) as they watch a concert of Pyongyang's Samjiyon Orchestra at a national theatre in Seoul on Feb 11, 2018.

    SEOUL (AFP) - South Korean President Moon Jae In sat next to the powerful sister of the North's leader Kim Jong Un at a concert in Seoul by musicians from Pyongyang, as conservative protesters burned the North's national flag outside on Sunday (Feb 11).

    The show was the final set-piece element of the North Korean delegation's landmark visit, the diplomatic highlight of the Olympics-driven rapprochement between the two halves of the peninsula, and they flew back home afterwards.

    They have shared kimchi and soju with Moon, sat in the same box at the Olympics opening ceremony and cheered a unified women's ice hockey team together.

    Kim on Saturday (Feb 10) invited Moon to a summit in the North, an offer extended by his sister and special envoy Kim Yo Jong, who made history as the first member of the North's ruling dynasty to visit the South since the Korean War.

    Moon did not immediately accept the invitation and has said he hopes the "right conditions" will be created so it can go ahead.

    Pictures showed Yo Jong seated between Moon and the North's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong Nam, who is officially leading the North's delegation, and applauding at Sunday's concert.

    ^Wondering what might be the "right conditions".
    Perhaps he has to ask somewhere (please no names here)...

    Reunification? No.

    Better relations? Possible.

    Officially they are still at war.

    So the "right conditions" would probably involve a Peace Treaty.

    Wouldn't it piss some of the war mongers off if they did start getting along and NK started to play the game?

    Peace treaty is where one side surrenders and formally accepts the terms the victor sets forth. Like the ww2 peace treaty with Japanese.

    A cease fire is where neither side has won victory. They agree to stop fighting but a state of war still exists.

    Another fine American perpetuated invention that most buy into so easily.
    Hook, line, and sinker.

    Consider the source and numbed-down.

    Amen. Was other parties that stated the whole problem after ww2. Brilliant move. Let's split Korea in half. Give one half to the russkies and the other to the yanks.

    Interesting. What is it called when neither side has won victory but they have stopped fighting (or agree to stop fighting) and end a state of war?

    In this case the Chinese and Russians collaborated in the invention.

    Would be a peace treaty as well. Terms of the treaty negotiated rather than dictated by one side. This would be the form a NK/SK treaty would take.

    Wasn't the armstice agreement between NK/SK sort of a peace treaty. I mean I have been in the blue house at the DMZ where there is no border of NK/SK.
