Goodwill of all is crucial for peninsula peace

China Daily | Updated: 2018-05-17 07:22

The easing of tensions that has completely changed the picture on the Korean Peninsula has been hard won. It should not be taken for granted.

The good progress that has been made in getting the two sides talking has necessitated a softening of their previously bellicose stances. However, the rapport that has been forged is extremely vulnerable given the mistrust and suspicion that has festered over the years.

Yet this is a historic moment when the antagonism and mistrust fomented during the Cold War may finally be laid to rest. The possibility of direct talks between the leaders of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the United States - the first since the armistice agreement put an end to hostilities 65 years ago - should be cherished, not squandered.
