International academic conference marking the 47th anniversary of the founding of the Institute for Far Eastern Studies and the 30th anniversary of the founding of the University of North Korean Studies

On September 23, an international academic conference was held at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul to mark the 47th anniversary of the founding of the Institute for Far Eastern Studies at Kyungnam University and the 30th anniversary of the founding of the University of North Korean Studies.

Unification Minister Kim Yeon Chul, in a keynote speech, said, “North Korea has recently expressed intentions to resume the working-level negotiations with the United States, indicating that it is finding a clue for the negotiations with Washington, which have been at a standstill .If this dialogue … indeed proceeds, it would be a great opportunity to assess the direction of denuclearization negotiations as this would be the first round of negotiations between North Korea and the US since the Hanoi summit.” He added, “Instead of just sitting back and waiting, the government will do everything it can and work closely together with Pyeongyang and Washington to ensure that the working-level negotiations between North Korea and the US lead to a great outcome.”
