POLITICS: North and South Korea landmark summit infographic

Rival Korean leaders to meet in historic summit

Graphic News

April 27, 2018 -- Kim Jong-un of North Korea and South Korean President Moon Jae-in meet for the first time at the “truce village” of Panmunjom for talks aimed at extending the recent détente on the Peninsula. The talks will pave the way for a historic summit between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump.

The two Korean leaders will meet at Peace House, a South Korean building which lies south of the demarcation line that bisects Panmunjom, which means that Kim would become the first North Korean leader to set foot in the South since the Korean War.

Leaders of the two Koreas have held talks only twice since the 1950-53 Korean War, in 2000 and 2007, under previous liberal governments in South Korea. The Korean Peninsula was divided in 1945 into a U.S.-dominated south and Soviet-backed north, which became sovereign nations three years later.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
