Unification Spokesperson’s Commentary on the 8th Party Congress of the Worker’s Party in North Korea

January 9, 2021

North Korean state media reported today (Jan.9) on the key contents of the overall project report at the 8th Party Congress, and announced major policy tasks and directions for the future.

The ROK Government remains consistent in pursuing denuclearization and settlement of peace on the Korean Peninsula, and improvement of inter-Korean relations.

Our will to implement inter-Korean agreements is as firm as it has been stated many times, and we look forward to creating a new starting point for peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula in the near future based on mutual trust and respect.

As the prospective inauguration of the new U.S. administration can be a great opportunity to improve bilateral relations between the U.S. and the DPRK, we look forward to restarting U.S.-DPRK relations as soon as possible.

The Unification Ministry will observe the follow-up including written decision of the 8th Party Congress.
