Unification Minister Kim participates in the 2019 Korean Peninsula Peace Symposium

The 5th Korean Peninsula Peace Symposium was co-hosted by Yonhap News Agency and the Ministry of Unification on June 27 on the “New Korean Peninsula System for Shared Prosperity.”

Minister Kim, in his keynote speech, emphasized the three directions of the new Korean Peninsula system, a national vision for the next 100 years presented by President Moon Jae-in, in his speech marking the centennial of the March 1st Independence Movement this year.

A peace community on the Korean Peninsula

“The new Korean Peninsula system pursues ‘a peace community on the Korean Peninsula’ in which South and North Korean people end the age-old conflicts and confrontations, recognize each other, and live together.”

An economic community on the Korean Peninsula

“Economic cooperation between the South and the North based on peace will enrich the lives of all people and further strengthen peace on the Korean Peninsula.”

Pursuing change in the regional order, as well as on the Korean Peninsula “Because inter-Korean relations are of great interest to neighboring countries, peace on the Korean Peninsula will naturally expand into East Asia.”

He also said, “The key value of the new Korean Peninsula system is ‘people.’ History is what we, the ordinary people, create. The government will actively communicate with people from all walks of life and collect public opinions to inform and put into practice the initiative of the new Korean Peninsula system.”
