Unification Minister Cho participates in the International Forum on DMZ Peace and Cooperation

Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon gave opening remarks at the International Forum on DMZ Peace and Cooperation hosted by the Ministry of Unification at the Plaza Hotel in Seoul on November 20.

Minister Cho addressed the implementation of military agreements including complete suspension of hostile acts along the military demarcation line, demilitarization of the Joint Security Area in Panmunjeom, and removal of landmines to jointly excavate the remains of Korean War dead; and inter-Korean cooperation efforts in forestry, prevention of infectious diseases, and health care in the DMZ and border areas. He stated, “The DMZ was long a space of tight security and acute hostility but is fast becoming a space of peace and cooperation.”

“The government will implement inter-Korean agreements step by step and achieve denuclearization and lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula in cooperation with the international community,” the Minister said. “It will give shape to the DMZ peace belt to realize win-win cooperation while preserving the precious value of the DMZ, including its tremendous biodiversity and unspoiled nature.”
