Bishop Lazzaro elaborated: “The event was deeply emotional. Today in Korea there is an air of great optimism and hope. Something which seemed impossible only a few months ago when there was talk of war, today has actually happened. Today we say to the Lord: complete Your work. We are brothers: as Koreans we are one people”. Great merit, he adds “must be attributed to president Moon, who is a Catholic, and he believed deeply in this possibility and worked hard for this result”. Asia News reported , Three days after the signing of the "Panmunjom Declaration", the two Koreas are already taking the first concrete steps towards reconciliation and the "cessation of all hostile acts".
Asia News said, the North Korean national news agency Knca announced that the country will bring the clock forward 30 minutes, abolishing the "own" time zone, established in August 2015, to overcome the legacy of the Japanese occupation (1910- 45) that had imposed it. The Seoul and Pyongyang clocks will be back on the same time on May 5th.
Jae-in during their talks: in May Pyongyang will close the Punggye-ri site, under Mount
Mantap, allowing South Korean and American experts and journalists to supervise the
process. In recent days, the site has been the focus of speculation and analysis that
Punggye-ri is already unusable as it has collapsed. Kim Jong-un intervened on the question:
"two of the four tunnels" are still usable.
The diplomatic ferment around the two Koreas, which involves other powers, is
continuing apace. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Li will travel to Pyongyang this week.
The United States declares its optimism and the expectation ahead of the summit between
Kim and Trump - who states that things are going very well ".
