South Korea and North Korea have agreed “in principle” to declare a formal end to the Korean war.

The Korean war ended in July 1953 with an armistice but not a peace treaty, meaning the North and South are still technically at war.

China and the United States of America have been working with both North and South Korea to bring about the agreement.

South Korean unification minister, Lee In-Young, said a declaration could be a “turning point for a new phase for peace” between the two countries.

North Korea and South Korea now need to organise a meeting to formalise the agreement.

  1. It’s a good thing that they are at peace. Maybe it will stop some of the horrible things that happen.
