Experts Say

New hope on the Korean peninsula, believe it or not

Brace yourselves for the week now beginning. A rapid succession of events over the past few days suggests that an outbreak of good sense may be imminent on the Korean Peninsula. We will know more this Tuesday, when North and South open direct talks for the first time in two years. The obvious outcome to hope for is a new start toward a sustainable resolution of the Korean crisis. At the moment this seems perfectly possible (and what a pleasure to write this sentence after a year of nuclear-charged anxiety that has us all on edge). A big turn in world affairs may be in the offing.
