    Whereas I would like to believe that North Korean officials truly wish to make peace--in a non-cynical way--with their South Korean counterparts, I doubt that this is anything more than an attempt to drive a wedge between South Korea and the US.

    North Korea would almost certainly never agree to the re-unification of the two Koreas, except on the North's terms. (That is to say, the emerging state would be an authoritarian one.)

    And China, also, would angrily veto any South-like state on its own border.

    The US government are the ones who keep putting unrealistic and unreasonable preconditions on peace talks. And when Tillerson hinted that talks could occur without preconditions, he was quickly overruled.

    You need to read a decent history of the Korean War and its aftermath.
    I'm well aware of the history.

    The only reason North and South Korea even exist is because US military planners arbitrarily divided the Korean peninsula in half in the aftermath of WWII.

    And after they imperiously divided the country in half, they installed a puppet regime in the South that brutally repressed anyone even resembling a "communist".

    Then there was the Korean war, which killed millions of North Korean civilians.

    Since then, North Korea has been trying to get the US government into peace negotiations, but the US government refuses to enter into peace talks unless North Korea meets certain preconditions first. The only problem is that the preconditions are the very thing North Korea wants to negotiate about. The US government is basically saying to North Korea, give us everything we want and then we'll think about negotiating. That is absurd. That's not how genuine negotiations work.

    Debatable. Especially when you consider the fact that the US were the ones occupying the Korean peninsula, thousands of miles away from their own country.

    You have to have peace talks before there can be a peace treaty. And the US government steadfastly refuses to enter into peace talks unless the North agrees to give the US government everything it wants.
