South Korea's Moon Jae-in says, a peace treaty with the North 'must be pursued'

South Korean President: Moon Jae-in asserted today, a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War "must be pursued". His comments come ahead of a summit with Kim Jong Un, the leader of the nuclear-armed North.
The 1950-53 Korean War ended in a 'ceasefire' rather than a 'peace treaty', leaving the two sides 'technically at war', and the Demilitarised Zone between them - where Moon and Kim will meet next Friday - bristles with minefields and fortifications.
The summit between Moon and Kim will be the biggest highlight of a 'whirlwind of diplomacy' on the peninsula, which began thanks to the Winter Olympics.
