"I'm driving talks between President Trump and Kim Jong-un"

KOREA: June 12, South Korean President Moon Jae-in was received by King Harald during the country's first official state visit to Norway. Moon spoke of the devastating effects of "structural violence" that the division of his country had on both North and South Korea, and of "positive peace."

18. In May, President Moon met with survivors and relatives in Gwangju to mark the 39 anniversary of what can best be described as the country's Tienanmen space massacre. A heavily affected Moon met the crowd in the large memorial grove. Crying witnesses were occasionally interrupted by counter-protesters who wanted to "crush the Communists". Large police forces flanked the crowd, but did not intervene.

The contrast between the cheer at Castle Square and the mind and grief of Gwangju could not have been greater. To understand the significance of Moon's visit to Norway, we should stop for a moment by this contrast.
