Unification Minister Cho participates in the launch ceremony of the National Civil Council for Social Dialogue on a Vision for Peace and Unification

Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon participated in the launch ceremony of the National Civil Council for Social Dialogue on a Vision for Peace and Unification held at the Korea Press Center in Jung-gu, Seoul on November 1.

Minister Cho, Democratic Party of Korea lawmaker Won Hye-young, and Liberty Korea Party lawmaker Kim Moo-sung delivered congratulatory messages, and representatives of political parties, religions, and NGOs, and citizens took part in the ceremony.

In giving congratulations on the launch of the National Civil Council for Social Dialogue on a Vision for Peace and Unification, the Unification Minister said, “Policy on North Korea and unification will determine the fate and future of the Korean Peninsula, so it is natural that the people should participate in policy making.” “When all people, regardless of political orientation, religion, age, and region, come together and create the future, today’s peace will become more enduring and tomorrow’s unification will come much more quickly,” he added.

Minister Cho said, “I ask the civil council that raises its sails today to take the lead in crossing the river between us and to sail across the sea of peace… The government will actively reflect your inputs in policy and support your efforts.” Representatives of NGOs including liberal, conservative, and moderate organizations and the seven largest religious orders gathered together this past July to form the citizens’ committee on unification and engaged in dialogue on unification. The civil council plans to continue to engage in such dialogue and build a national consensus on policy on North Korea and unification, ultimately to reconcile internal conflicts in our society (South-South conflicts) and open the way toward national unity. It will be officially launched next year.
