(FOX NEWS) – In a dramatic early Friday announcement, North and South Korean leaders agreed to a framework that could finally bring peace to the peninsula and potentially end decades of tension between the Hermit Kingdom and the global community.

The joint announcement that both sides will work toward a “nuclear-free Korean Peninsula” and try to officially end the Korean War came after a historic meeting between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un — who, fewer than four months ago, threatened the United States with nuclear weapons.

But the same Kim Jong Un who declared in a stark New Year’s address that a nuclear launch button is “always on my table” continued his recent — and surprising — push for peace during his meeting with Moon.

While it was not immediately clear what concrete steps the countries would take to achieve the lofty goals set forth Friday, both nations agreed to hold further high-level talks and other negotiations, including a push for joint talks with the U.S. and also potentially China.
