(CBC News) When North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in meet for their first face-to-face talks in more than a decade Friday, Canadian veterans of the Korean War will be watching closely.
“We’re very worried,” said 86-year-old Michael Czuboka.
“The last thing we need is the person in the North dropping shells and God knows what else on Seoul and other places. It would be a total disaster. It’s terrifying, from that point of view, that we would lose everything we fought for.”
The meeting will take place on the south side of the Korean border village of Panmunjom. It’s the first time a North Korean leader will cross the border since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.
