(11 April 2013, Seoul) Marking the 60th anniversary of armistice agreement, the Korean peninsula in 2013 is facing an unprecedented level of military tension – moving dangerously close to a state of war. Shutting down the Kaesong Industrial Complex, which was deemed as the last resort for exchanges of dialogue and cooperation between the two Koreas as well as the recent North Korean threats of a missile launch are testament of deteriorating relations. On the other hand, the voices for peaceful reconciliation have had very little effect, causing concern amongst the public which has resulted in fluctuations in the state of the economy.


For this reason, Peace Forum under the Civil Society Organizations Network in Korea held a joint meeting of representatives from all spheres to call for peaceful dialogue and cooperation and the withdrawal of all types of military threats. Fifty representatives who gathered today have agreed to organize the “Joint Meeting of People of All Walks for Peace and Cooperation in the Korean Peninsula” and to take actions on the prevention of armed conflicts, achieving peaceful resolutions through negotiations, creating an environment of mutual respect where the viewpoints from the opposing party are respected and seriously considered, people-oriented peace alternatives, and implementation of peace and solidarity. The Joint Meeting is determined to promote peace talks in all social spheres, carry out campaigns and urgent action in all areas to prevent a military conflict in the Korean peninsula, explore peaceful cooperation with the Parliament and the government, suggest peace from the perspective of the citizens, and to perform non-governmental diplomacy.


For this press conference, fifty figures from various fields gathered and issued the statement: ‘People should Act Now to Overcome Crisis of Armed Conflict in the Korean peninsula,’ an open letter to the government of the Republic of Korea and the USA “We Have to Avoid a Military Conflict in the Korean Peninsula through Dialog and Cooperation” and an open letter to the government of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea “The Recent Temporary Closure of the Kaesong Industrial Complex”.
