On November 11, Minister Kwon Youngse delivered congratulatory
remarks at the 「2022 SAND* Northeast Asia International Forum.」
Minister Kwon Youngse mentioned that North Korea is increasing its
nuclear and missile capabilities and repeating military provocations,
adding to difficulties not only in our security but also in all areas
of inter-Korean relations and unification, which threatens the
security of Northeast Asia beyond the Korean Peninsula.
Minister Kwon emphasized that now is the time to bring the
transition, which is why the Yoon Suk Yeol administration laid out the
“Audacious Initiatives” to initiation such transition.
He also said, “We will realize the denuclearization of North Korea
and open up a new future for the Korean Peninsula while finding common
strategic interests through creative thinking and diplomatic negotiations.”
