Statement

 

“The International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) and the Korean Peninsula Peace Unification Women’s Committee urge to establish the ‘Peace Agreement of the Cessation of War on the Korean Peninsula’!”

 

 The Earth is the only planet in the endless universe that has life and beautiful nature. We must protect the earth from war as the only inheritance of humanity.

 Marking the 64th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice Agreement, North Korea is threatening the entire world with its 6th nuclear test and has made the Korean Peninsula as a powder keg that can be exploded any time. As the UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said “North Korea could vaporize Seoul” (Telegraph, 3 Sep 2017), the world’s leaders have voiced their concern for the security of the Korean Peninsula, called for ‘a peaceful solution’ monitoring the North Korea’s nuclear provocations closely and warned to slap sanctions.

Now, the people of the Korean Peninsula should face the world situation and take a step out of the complacent mind about war and wake up with the spirit of peace and take actions for the peaceful reunification of the Korean peninsula.

The Korean nation doesn’t want war but peace. In addition, the entire world longs for peace. Therefore, there cannot be more wars on the Korean Peninsula where the war has not ended. The Korean War Armistice Agreement for 64 years needs to be ended and we urge peace agreement to be made.

Therefore, the IWPG and the Korean Peninsula Peace Unification Women’s Committee will oppose the proliferation of nuclear weapons and nuclear culture on the Korean Peninsula in order to create a true peace and expand the necessity of ‘Peace Agreement for the Cessation of War on the Korean Peninsula’. In addition, we will expand the awareness of the people so that they can participate in the peaceful unification campaign on the Korean Peninsula.

The IWPG and the Korean Peninsula Peace Unification Women’s Committee start the campaign for 10 million signing to urge for establishing ‘Peace Agreement for the Cessation of War on the Korean Peninsula’. We are convinced that peaceful reunification of the Korean Peninsula will become a key issue of the world peace movement by making a statement of commitment and support from the members of the IWPG and peace groups from all over the world.

The signing to call for ‘Peace Agreement for the Cessation of War on the Korean Peninsula’ is co-organized by 67 branches of IWPG in Korea and the Korean Peninsula Peace Unification Women’s Committee and will be spread out through press and Internet signing.

 Hereafter the result of 10 million signing will be delivered to the United Nations, China, North Korea and the government of Republic of Korea to abrogate the Korean War Armistice Agreement and contribute to make a fundamental base for ‘Peace Agreement’ to settle peace on the Korean Peninsula.

We, IWPG and the Korean Peninsula Peace Unification Women’s Committee, call on all the people of the Republic of Korea to actively participate in this peace campaign to unite the Korean Peninsula peacefully so that the Korean Peninsula is able to hold the position of the powerful nation for peace.

We strongly urge the people of the Republic of Korea and the world to participate in the effort together to establish the peace agreement for the cessation of war on the Korean Peninsula.
