According to the White House announcement,
North Korea returned on July 27, the remains of
the US soldiers who died in the Korean War,
to the United States. I think that this movement
should not be considered easily. The return of
the remains is one of the agreements between
President Trump and Kim Jong Un Labor Party
chairman at the US-North Korean summit
meeting on June 12. It was carried out.
The White House announced that
“Mr. Kim Jong Un fulfilled part of the promise with President Trump.” Also, South Korea’s
Yonhap news said, “This time North Korea
different from the past, did not demand return.”
This “Return of the remains” occurred in the
course of the international society progressing
toward the ultimate goal of “international peace
and international cooperation”, and it is a
“meaningful event that occurred to achieve
When considering such events, it is important
to think about the facts established at the very
beginning. The fact established at the very
beginning is that the purpose and real intention
of North Korea’s nuclear development so far to
date have been in the “Security of the Korean
Peninsula”. As long as this purpose and intention
remain unchanged, the following can be defined.
1. North Korea has nuclear weapons but it will not
invade other countries. (It is because aggression
is not the purpose like the past Nazi Germany)
2. If the purpose is “Security of the Korean
Peninsula”, it can be solved by discussion in the
3. In the heart of Kim Jong Un, he has a strong
desire to “realize that”. That’s why he actively
held the Inter-Korean summit talks and the US-North Korean summit talks. The return of the
remains of this time is also carried out with the
At present, the US-North Korea relationship
seems to have continued to stalemate.
However, at the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF)
held on August 4, North Korean Foreign Minister
Ri Yong-ho said, ” (The United States is)
reluctant to the Declaration of the end of the
Korean War which is the first step in realizing
peace on the Korean Peninsula.”
From what he says “the first step”, we can know
that North Korea is currently have the most
emphasis on “Declaration of the end of the
Korean War”, and they think that it is a key point
for the future development of the US-North Korea
relationship. In addition, Pompeo US Secretary of
State said at the press conference on 4th,
“It is optimistic for realizing Denuclearization”.
(Above, Nikkei Daily) From this statement, it can
be inferred that the two countries are currently
discussing “End Declaration” seriously.
I’d like to keep watching the future trend of the
US-North Korean relationship.
As with everything, in order to achieve things
in perfect form, “Keeping the very first starting
point till the end” is the key point. For example,
suppose that there were things such as
“I felt this was definitely a fact”, “I thought this
was really important”, “I was impressed very
much. Everyone will be touched” and so on.
Then, it is important to “keep that starting point
strong” until it actually realized, even for 10 years
or 20 years . And you make efforts and work
wisdom to realize that.
Whether or not the last of the goal can be
achieved, also, Whether or not you can win in
the end, — is determined by this one point.
If your mind changes on the way, or to be
another idea or to be another way on the way,
or doubts on the way, it will not be realized.
It is important to have doubts and criticism
spirit, but that is what you do in the process.
Do not change the fundamental point and keep
the first point until you achieve the last goal.
