Korea National Maritime Museum opens the special exhibition “The Forgotten Other Seas, the Seas of North Korea”

The Korea National Maritime Museum held the opening ceremony for the special exhibition “The Forgotten Other Seas, the Seas of North Korea” on July 22. It is a collection of photos about the seas of North Korea from the 1950s to
today.

Unification Minister Kim Yeon Chul, in his congratulatory speech, said, “I hope that this exhibition encourages the people to think and realize again that the seas of North Korea, the ‘forgotten seas’ in the memories of most of the people, are ‘other seas’ much closer at hand than we think,” adding, “If we reconnect the seas of South and North Korea, the destiny of the Korean Peninsula will change dramatically.”

In the afternoon that day, Minister Kim participated in the opening ceremony of the Gyeongnam Research Center for Inter-Korean Exchange and Cooperation at the Gyeongnam Institute. He emphasized, “The government’s policy on North Korea pursues decentralized governance. Local governments will assume greater roles as inter-Korean relations expand into more areas and inter-Korean exchange and cooperation becomes more active.”
