North Korea just announced an effort at peace with South Korea and the United States. This marks a major change in tone from the bullying we’ve seen so often aimed at the U.S. North Korea’s Kim Jong Un promised not to use nuclear weapons against the South and will hold talks with the U.S. about denuclearization.
We’re not holding our breath on this to last. North Korea has done this before but then we didn’t have Trump as president. President Trump has said talks with North Korea are possible “under the right conditions”.

Fox News reports:
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un promised to not use nuclear or conventional weapons against South Korea and expressed willingness to hold talks with the United States on denuclearization, Seoul said on Tuesday after a rare two-day visit to Pyongyang.
The Hermit Kingdom added that it’s willing to give up its nuclear weapons if military threats against North Korea subsides, South Korea’s presidential national security director Chung Eui-yong said in comments hours after leaving Pyongyang.
“The North expressed its willingness to hold a heartfelt dialogue with the United States on the issues of denuclearization and normalizing relations with the United States,” the statement said. “It made it clear that while dialogue is continuing, it will not attempt any strategic provocations, such as nuclear and ballistic missile tests.”
Chung, who lead a 10-member South Korean delegation to Pyongyang for the two-day visit, said the North is ready to have “heart-to-heart” talks with the U.S. about the regime’s potential denuclearization and normalization between the countries.
Chung said North Korea agreed to suspend nuclear and missile tests for as long as it holds talks with the United States.
North and South Korea agreed to hold summit talks in April. The leaders will establish a “hotline” communication channel to lower military tensions, Chung added.
