Two Koreas look to chart the path to denuclearization

Moon and Kim plan joint declaration addressing peace treaty at summit

SEOUL -- The North and South Korean leaders hope to confirm a commitment to denuclearization of the peninsula and begin a process toward a peace treaty in a historic summit on Friday that could have a profound impact on Northeast Asian security.

Officials from both countries on Wednesday made a joint inspection of the facility in the border village of Panmunjom where South Korean President Moon Jae-in will meet with Kim Jong Un. Kim will become the first North Korean leader to cross the border into the South Korean side of the demilitarized zone.
