The denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula has been a key issue for the international order and in lieu with the same on September 7, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that diplomacy is the “only pathway” to sustainable peace in the Korean Peninsula.
Addressing the annual Korean Global Forum for Peace hosted by the Unification Ministry of the Republic of Korea (ROK) via an online message, UN Chief Antonio Guterres said, “In 2018, leaders of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the Republic of Korea, and the United States showed that dialogue is possible and that diplomacy is the only pathway to sustainable peace and denuclearization.”
UN Chief even urged the concerned parties to restart diplomatic efforts and resume their stalled dialogue.
“It is important for the parties to continue what they started. The international community is eager to see progress … You have our solidarity as the Korean Peninsula faces the pandemic, floods and typhoons. It is crucial that the two Koreas address these and other challenges together … I encourage you, through this important forum, to imagine a future of peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula,” said United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
