The summit meeting between North and South Korea is just one week away. A senior official of South Korea’s Blue House indicated that replacing the armistice regime with a peace treaty is a major agenda item for the meeting between the leaders Kim Jong-un (North Korea) and Moon Jae-in (South Korea).
Dr. Christine Hong, Associate Professor of Critical Race and Ethnic Studies at UC Santa Cruz and a member of the Korea Policy Institute, and Simone Chun, a fellow at the Korea Policy Institute and a member of the Korean Peace Network joined hosts Brian Becker and Walter Smolarek on their radio program Loud & Clear to discuss what it could mean for a peace process to be led by an inter-Korean effort.

Simone Chun also joined The Real News to talk about the role of grassroots movements in pushing for the South Korean and the U.S. governments to try the process for peace after decades of hostility against North Korea. By Chun’s assessment, the mass mobilizations and solidarity from the people of the Korean Peninsula will continue to be critical in creating the conditions that can cement the peace process.
