Author Gordon Chang said the meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in was "breathtaking."
His comments came Friday during an interview on CNN's "New Day."
The two Korean leaders have agreed to end the seven-decade war and pursue the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula.
"This really is breathtaking," said Chang, author of "Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes on the World."
"And we've got to remember this is one breathtaking event after another because you had a couple of weeks ago the talking about a peace treaty, talking about the unification of the two Koreas. and then, of course the summit between President (Donald) Trump and Kim Jong Un himself.
"And that's going to trigger a whole new series of events. I think the issue here is that you have national leaders who won’t be able to control the situation because events are happening so fast."
He credited Trump's sanctions on North Korea for creating "all sorts of opportunities."
