South Korea's Foreign Minister: The Credit on North Korea Progress Clearly Goes to President Trump

For the first time since 1953, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un walked hand-in-hand across the DMZ, crossing into each other's respective country. Later in the day after a series of meetings, the two leaders agreed to officially end the Korean War.

During an interview with CNN's Christiana Amonpour Friday, South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha credited President Trump for the progress being made.

"Clearly credit goes to President Trump. He’s been determined to come to grips with this from day one,” Kyung-wha said.

Meanwhile, the United States is taking a celebratory yet cautious approach to the progress. President Trump's meeting with Kim Jong Un is being planned for June, although a location has not been announced.
