"Chairman Kim and I have set an unshakeable milestone on the denuclearization, permanent peace and the shared prosperity of the people on the Korean Peninsula," Moon said in a joint briefing with Kim after they signed the document. | License Photo
"I became profoundly aware that the South and North cannot live separately, as we are flesh and blood and compatriots," Kim said. "We are not two different nations that should fight one another but, we are the same people, of the same blood, who must unite and live peacefully."
