Two Koreas: U.N. Command Wrap Up First Talks On Disarming Border

North and South Korea held their first three-way talks with the United Nations Command (UNC) on Tuesday to discuss ways to demilitarize the border as the neighbors push for peace, South Korea’s defense ministry said.The two Koreas agreed this week to begin reconnecting rail and road links, in spite of U.S. concerns that a rapid thaw in relations could undermine efforts to press North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons. Tuesday’s meeting followed a summit between leaders of the two countries in the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, last month. The two leaders agreed to hold talks with the UNC, which overlaps with U.S. forces in the South and oversees affairs in the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) separating the two Koreas, to smooth the way to disarming one of the world’s most heavily fortified frontiers.

They are moving ahead - planning to build road and rail links as part of these historic peace talks. Dreams are possible.

Getting North Korea to play nice with the rest of the world will go along way to ensuring peace in East Asia.

Interesting point, to say the least.  But, this shit has to end someday.  I say go for it, and it looks like the 2 Koreas are both willing to take their chances.
