Unification Minister Kim participates in the Korea Global Forum for Peace 2019

The Korea Global Forum for Peace (KGFP) 2019, titled “Working Together for Peace in Korea,” was held at the Westin Chosun Seoul on June 19.

The forum was launched in 2010 in order to build the consensus on peace and unification of the Korean Peninsula at home and abroad.

Unification Minister Kim Yeon Chul, in a keynote speech, said that the North Korea-US summit in Hanoi was not a “one-shot game” but part of an ongoing game, adding that, “The positions that Pyeongyang and Washington confirmed in Hanoi are important clues to how later negations should proceed, ultimately delivering substantial results.”

Minister Kim continued, “It will advance the realization of complete denuclearization and the establishment of a peace system on the Korean Peninsula through balanced development of the triangular cooperation between South and North Korea and the US to ensure a virtuous cycle of inter-Korean, North Korea-US, and South Korea-US relations.”

He said, “The ROK government will continue to strive to ensure that the two wheels – development in inter-Korean relations and the denuclearization and peace process on the Korean Peninsula – never stop and continue rolling forward,” adding, “Despite whatever difficulties that come along, the government, with determination, will implement the inter-Korean joint declarations step by step and establish lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula.”
