Seoul, July 11 (IANS) South Korean President Moon Jae-in expressed hope on Tuesday that North Korea will positively respond to the peace initiative he suggested last week in Germany.
Moon presided over his first cabinet meeting since he came back home on Monday, following his attendance at the G20 summit, Xinhua news agency reported.
During his stay in Germany, Moon proposed a Korean Peninsula Peace Initiative to explain his government’s policy direction to establish permanent peace on the peninsula.
The initiative was to pursue the denuclearised peninsula that guarantees the North Korean regime and to resume bilateral and multilateral dialogues for the denuclearisation.
It also aimed to establish a permanent peace regime on the peninsula to end the armistice, which came from the 1950-1953 Korean War. The peninsula is technically in a state of war as the war ended in truce, not peace treaty.
