End of war declaration could come before complete denuclearization: ROK minister

Cho Myoung-gyon says formal end to conflict possible if DPRK takes "sincere measures”

The two Koreas and the U.S. could declare an end to the Korean War before Pyongyang’s complete denuclearization, the South's unification minister said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a policy briefing at the National Assembly’s Foreign Affairs and Unification Committee, Minister of Unification Cho Myoung-gyon said discussions between the two Koreas and the U.S. have sought to declare the formal end of the Korean war within the year.
