While the world gets goose bumps over the historic agreement between North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, the mood on the southern half of the Peninsula is one of hope, and of skepticism. Can the North be trusted?
After receiving a letter from Kim Jong Un, US President Trump said he was "never a fan" of joint US-South Korea war games. Trump indicated new talks could be ahead, even as North Korea continues to launch missiles.
Pyongyang has halted nuclear negotiations with the US, with North Korea saying talks had broken down. Pyongyang said expectations had not been met, while Washington said the two sides had "good discussions."
North Korea's leader reportedly said it was up to the United States to "come up with a courageous decision." But he said the country had to make up its mind by the end of this year.
Months after talks with Pyongyang broke down, Donald Trump said he would like to visit the Demilitarized Zone and "shake hands" with the North Korean leader. North Korea said the meeting would be "meaningful."
