U.N. supports Korean peace, unification

Posted October. 18, 2000 12:11,   


The 55th General Assembly of the United Nations is about to adopt a resolution in support of the peaceful reunification of the Korean Peninsula proposed jointly by South and North Korea.

Such a resolution would be a most comprehensive and authoritative endorsement by the international community of the ongoing inter-Korean rapprochement.

The Fourth Committee of the General Assembly on Monday recommended that the question of "peace, security and unification of the Korean Peninsula" be included in the additional UNGA agenda. South and North Korea, the United States, Russia, Japan, China and 41 other members agreed to present a draft resolution on the subject.

The question, along with two subjects including one on follow-up steps for the Millennium Summit, will be placed on the additional agenda to be adopted during the current General Assembly.
