STATEMENT BY THE PRESIDENT
I welcome the announcement that the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea will hold an historic first summit in June.
Direct dialogue between the two Koreas is something we have long advocated and is fundamental to solving the problems of the Korean Peninsula.
This announcement is testimony to the wisdom and long-term vision of President Kim Dae-Jung's engagement policy. I congratulate both leaders on their decision to meet.
