NCCK"s statement:

We positively welcome

the outcome of the Summit meeting between the North and the South.

 

The NCCK has welcomed that the President Roh Moo-Hyun of South Korea and Chairperson Kim Jung-Il of North Korea hold the Summit meeting on October 2-4th in Pyongyang and has reached to a declaration for Peace and Prosperity on Korean peninsula.

Regarding the result of the agreement, even though we have different opinions in evaluating it and are not sure of how it will be implemented, there is no doubt to point out that the summit meeting between the two leaders itself is very important, and it paves for peace and prosperity on Korean peninsula. Therefore we strengthen that it is not necessary to predict and criticize the result of the Summit meeting with a political reason.

The NCCK had highly evaluated the first Summit meeting which opened a new opportunity to mutual understanding between two Koreas, relationship development, Peace and Unification.

We believe that this second Summit meeting has reaffirmed a positive implementation of the June 15 Joint Declaration and inherits and fosters February 13 agreement, and that it will contribute on reconciliation, unification and prosperity of our nation and building peace system on Korean peninsula.

We strongly emphasize that in the situation facing with presidential election on this coming December this Summit should not be politically misinterpreted or denounced scathingly by politicians and candidates for presidential election, and rather we urge those candidates and politicians to participate in our effort for bringing about peace on Korean peninsula.

This declaration is dealing with very practical and important issues itemized as 8 points. However support, implementation and participation by people after declaration is more necessary and important.

In the solidarity with sisters and brothers of world churches, the NCCK, which has prayed and worked for the reconciliation, peace and unification of the North and the South, warmly welcomes again the outcomes of the second Summit and will make our every effort to accomplish peace settlement on Korean peninsula.
