In the Panmunjom Declaration of April 27, the leaders of North and South Korea declared that "there will be no more war on the Korean Peninsula and thus a new era of peace has begun". President Trump’s negotiations with Kim Jong Un, president of North Korea, promise to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.
