North Korea Won’t Stop Attacking Unless Conditions Met, Says Kim Yo-jong

Kim Yo-jong, North Korea’s envoy and sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, says her country is open to ending the war with South Korea if conditions are met. “We believe we can end the history of confrontation on this land and achieve peace by meeting all necessary conditions for that,” she said during a visit to Seoul.

Kim Yo-jong is currently in South Korea for the opening of the 2018 Winter Olympics. She held several meetings with President Moon Jae-in on Saturday and discussed ways to improve relations between the two countries.

Kim Yo-jong is the first member of North Korea’s ruling family to set foot in South Korea since the end of the Korean War (1950–1953). The conflict ended with an armistice treaty that created a buffer zone between North and South. She also invited President Moon Jae-in to visit Pyongyang.
