On March 1, during a meeting of the currently ruling Democratic Party of Korea, the South Korean Unification minister Cho Myung-Gyun stated that Seoul will continue to develop contacts with North Korea, TASS reports.
According to the minister, the main goal should be a summit between leaders from the two Koreas, which was proposed by North Korea. Cho Myung-Gyun believes that it is important to continue the process of rapprochement, first of all in the areas of sport, culture, and healthcare. Equally important is to facilitate meetings for separated families and to find solutions to return prisoners.
Almost 65 years have passed since the end of the Korean War. The two states formed at that time still cannot establish sustainable relations. Over the years these relations were not stable, sometimes there was escalated tension, followed by smooth periods. A tendency towards warmer relations between the two Koreas emerged when Kim Jong-un came to power in North Korea. The most remarkable sign of such warming was the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games, where a unified team of the two Koreas competed together.
