The April 27 summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - the third-ever meeting of leaders from the two Koreas - may see the pair release a joint statement saying that they will seek to ease military tensions and to end confrontation, according to the official.

But Kim has changed course since the beginning of the year, sending a delegation to the Winter Olympics held in South Korea in February and agreeing to discuss with South Korea and the United States a nuclear program the North has defended as a necessary deterrent against USA invasion. The talks yielded an agreement to organize a meeting between the leaders of the two Koreas. "Given Kazakhstan's historic role in the process of non-proliferation, denuclearization of the Korean peninsula is the problem of paramount importance for our country".

NFL Draft: Steals and bargains with Alabama roots
Instead, like this offseason has shown, things heat up as talk about free agency and the 2018 NFL Draft get all the attention. This is our first full first round mock draft of the season and it can't come at a better time.

Moon Chung-in, a retired Yonsei University professor who is an adviser to President Moon Jae-in on inter-Korean and security issues, shared his assessment in an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press. Officials say they want it to be the first of many summits to happen in Panmunjom, until the two Koreas finally unify once again. "That is why the visit planned for the first half of 2018 had to be postponed", Ambassador Kim Dae sik told the press conference in Astana. "We should improve the frozen inter-Korean relations", Kim said in the televised address, "and glorify this meaningful year as an eventful one, noteworthy in the history of the nation". The North also had expressed readiness to hold a similar event with the President of the United States.

He stressed that Seoul will therefore make efforts to communicate with the United States as the country and North Korea work on their summit. DPRK is the acronym for North Korea's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. China and North Korea are trying to fix relations, which have been strained as Beijing has backed a series of United Nations sanctions meant to pressure Pyongyang to stop its nuclear activities.
