North Korea Calls for Peace Treaty

North Korea has asked to develop a peace treaty with the South and the United States in the effort to replace the ceasefire that was drawn up after the Korean War. The United States has replied by saying that in order to create this new treaty, North Korea must first resume the six-country nuclear negotiations and work on developing better human rights standards.

We will see over time if the involved countries choose to follow up on this, but knowing that North Korea is interested in developing a peace treaty is definitely a step in the right direction.
