On anniversary of inter-Korean talks, S. Korean Unification chief says denuclearization should be discussed directly Updated: 2022-07-04 17:20:50 KST

Today, July 4th, marks exactly fifty years since South and North Korea released their first joint statement on unification and established three principles for it: self-reliance, peace and the unity of the Korean people.
Commemorating the anniversary at the Plaza Hotel in Seoul, South Korean Unification Minister Kwon Young-se delivered a speech in which he said relations cannot fundamentally improve if Pyeongyang continues its nuclear program.
But also said that dialogue and denuclearization are not mutually exclusive that pursuing mutual prosperity through economic cooperation can take place alongside a denuclearization process.
For this, he asked for bipartisan support in South Korea and, without specifiying, for structural changes to how inter-Korean talks take place so that dunuclearization can be directly discussed at the negotiating table.
