President Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong Un are scheduled to hold a summit of April 27 in a village along the border.

Both officials are meeting to discuss an end to the military conflict existing between the nations for the past 68 years.

An anonymous South Korean official told a local newspaper that a direct line between Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong Un could be created by the end of the week.  This person expects that the two leaders may possibly release a joint statement officially ending the war at the summit next week.

It is anticipated that North Korea will be calling for a peace treaty during the summit next week.

The war between North and South Korea began in June 1950 when North Korean troops invaded South Korea after a series of border clashes.
