From a symbol of the pain of division and confrontation to a symbol of peace The Paju section of the DMZ Peace Trails is open to the public

A preliminary event was held on August 9, a day before the opening of the Paju section of the DMZ Peace Trails. Senior members of separated families, local residents, and students participated in the event. While walking the new peace trail, they experienced the change of the DMZ from a symbol of division and confrontation into a peace zone.

Unification Minister Kim Yeon Chul emphasized that “Peace is a land, and the economy is a flower that blossoms on that land. The government will develop the DMZ as a central space of peace where history, ecology, and culture come together while closely cooperating with the local governments of the border regions.”

He also said, “The government will finish the survey on routes in the east-west cross-section of the DMZ Peace Trails by the end of the year and plans to build local bases by 2022 to make them international attractions.”
