North Korean, South Korean and Allied negotiators will soon meet to discuss a peaceful resolution to this conflict, said the North Korean state news agency today. The broadcast came after a devastating series of raids against high-profile North Korean targets, which Allied officials say have significantly hampered the North's ability to wage war. Although Pyongyang has not issued any official statement on their goals for the talks, some United States negotiators suggest that Pyongyang will have little choice but to either accept the Allied terms of Surrender or walk away from the negotiations altogether.

 

China’s Xi Jingping has declared a halt to the supply of weapons and military aid to North Korea after an alleged chemical weapons attack against Allied troops in the region, according to the Xinhua state news agency. The attack drew broad criticism from the international community last Saturday, which was largely decried as a violation of human rights and international law. According to one top Canadian diplomat, the Chinese decision comes after ‘tremendous’ international pressure on China to punish North Korea for the attack.

 

The conflict in North Korea has been raging for around two months, and taken a devastating toll on the Korean people. The destruction has been mostly limited to the north of the peninsula, but the already suffering economy and low levels of functioning industry mean that any accurate estimates of the civilian death toll will most likely never be known.
