The 3rd inter-Korean summit, the first in more than 10 years, and the first between South Korean president Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was held April 27, 2018 at the South Korean side of the DMZ. Our CSIS experts Victor Cha (@VictorDCha), Michael Green and Sue Mi Terry (@SueMiTerry) assess the summit today for its impact on future inter-Korean relations, implications for Japan and China relations, and its effects on the upcoming and first ever U.S.-North Korea summit between U.S. president Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un.
