UNITED NATIONS, Sept 23 (NNN-YONHAP) – South Korean President, Moon Jae-in, called for the resumption of talks with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), as well as, an end-of-war declaration on the Korean Peninsula.
“Peace on the Korean Peninsula begins always with dialogue and cooperation,” Moon told the General Debate of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). “I call for speedy resumption of dialogue between the two Koreas and between the United States and North Korea (the DPRK).”
“Today, I once again urge the community of nations to mobilise its strength for the end-of-war declaration on the Korean Peninsula,” he said.
Last year, Moon proposed a declaration of ending the war on the Korean Peninsula, in a video speech to the 75th session of UNGA.
Both DPRK and South Korea have conducted missile tests in recent days, and both called their missile launches, acts of “self-defence.”
An international affairs analyst in DPRK recently criticised the United States for double-dealing on the Korean Peninsula, which he called “a stumbling block in the way of solving the Korean Peninsula issue” and a catalyst straining tensions.– NNN-YONHAP
