Information
This year marks the 70th year since the start of the Korean War on June 25, 1950. However, military conflicts and tensions have never ended and Koreans in the South and the North live with the reality of insecure peace in their everyday lives. Despite the concerns for the volatile political landscape of the Korean peninsula, we need to listen to the voices of various stakeholders about new opportunities that can emerge once these risks are resolved.
We have already seen an unprecedented step toward progress in building lasting peace in Korea in the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 which united the two Koreas through sport, and in the following history-making events such as the North Korea-US summits and the inter-Korea summits. However, despite growing aspirations for lasting peace in Korea, achieving this goal still seems to be distant even in 2020, after 70 years from the start of the Korean War.
Today, in the midst of expectations and concerns, the leaders who were involved in the past multi-lateral and summit meetings will gather for a discussion to share their views on the political landscape of the Korean Peninsula as well as the pending issues such as inter-Korean relations and the dialogue between North Korea and the US and to exchange ideas on ending the Korean War and establishing a lasting peace regime.
