Abstract

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the June 15th South-North Joint Declaration, Changbi’s vice editor-in-chief, Lee Nam Ju, and former Blue House chief of staff Im Jong-Seok had a highly meaningful conversation. During a frank and engaging exchange about the South-North Korea and North Korea-US summits, which had been going on and drawing worldwide attention, it is encouraging to see them confirm the real possibility that the Korean peace process could be settled, if we can overcome customary practices that have been blocking its progress.
