Back to the Future - A Unified Neutral Korean Nation and State - Declassified Documents

Around 30 years ago in 1987, North Korea had suggested forming a 'neutral state' on the Korean peninsula to form a buffer zone... according to declassified diplomatic documents. 

The 230-thousand-page documents disclosed by the South Korean Foreign Ministry on Friday revealed this proposal by the North, which was passed on in secret through Mikhail Gorbachev, then leader of the Soviet Union,... to then U.S. President Ronald Reagan, during a summit held at the White House on December 9th, 1987. 

The contents of this proposal include withdrawing all foreign military presence from the Korean peninsula, writing up a peace treaty, and the new 'neutral state' entity joining the United Nations under a single name.
