Unification Minister Cho participates in the opening ceremony of the PyeongChang Global Peace Forum 2019

On February 9, Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon participated in the opening ceremony of the PyeongChang Global Peace Forum 2019 held at Alpensia Resort in Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province.

Minister Cho, in his congratulatory speech, said that “There have been so many events about inter-Korean relations over the past year that we nearly lost track of time. It is easy to forget that everything began with the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games.”

He went on to say that “The Republic of Korea will strengthen the peace of the Korean Peninsula begun in Pyeongchang, end the last cold war on earth, and move toward greater peace along with friends around the world.”

Regarding the North Korea-US summit, he said that “The leaders of North Korea and the US established the principles of denuclearization and peace on the Korean Peninsula at the Singapore summit last year. I expect that the second North Korea-US summit in Vietnam will pave the way for substantial, concrete progress.”

Minister Cho continued to say that “The ROK government will work closely together with both Pyeongyang and Washington to ensure the success of the second North Korea-US summit. It will sustainably develop inter-Korean relations and move toward a future of common prosperity based on the new peace.”

The PyeongChang Global Peace Forum is a representative event of Peace Week.

It carries on the spirit of Pyeongchang peace on the occasion of the first anniversary of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The forum was held at the Alpensia Convention Center from February 9 to 11.
