South Korean President Moon Jae-in has promised to use his last months in office to push for a diplomatic breakthrough with North Korea, despite Pyongyang’s silence on his efforts to secure a declaration of peace between the two countries. Reuters reports that in his address on New Year’s Eve, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un focussed on jump-starting the economy and improving people’s lives. Marking 10 years in power, he made no mention of Moon’s calls for a declaration officially ending the 1950-53 Korean War, or stalled denuclearisation talks with the United States. “It is true that there is still a long way to go,” Moon acknowledged, but argued that if the two Koreas improved relations, the international community would follow.
