Ministry of Unification holds the DMZ Peace and Cooperation Forum

The Ministry of Unification held the DMZ Peace and Cooperation Forum on “Building a Peace Belt in the DMZ and Prosperity on the Korean Peninsula” at the DMZ Peace Culture Plaza in Cheorwon, Gangwon Province.

Vice Minister Suh Ho, in his opening speech, expressed hope that the border areas between South and North Korea would develop into a Belt for Peace and Prosperity and then serve as the foundation for a community of peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula.

He explained the need for inter-Korean exchange in history and culture including joint excavation of Taebong Kingdom-era Cheorwon Castle and the ruins of Manwoldae Palace, Gaeseong, and expressed expectation that such exchange would further expand and develop.

Vice Minister Suh said that if such exchange continues in the border region, more economic, societal, cultural, and other forms of cooperation between South and North Korea would be possible, which in turn would create a virtuous cycle of peace and economic development that would do much for the realization of peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula.
