Hugo Swire welcomes the agreement between the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula
Minister for Asia, Hugo Swire, said:
This is a welcome development which demonstrates the importance of dialogue and diplomacy. I am especially pleased both sides have committed to hold further talks to try to improve inter-Korean relations. Both countries working together to improve stability is a positive step which I hope, in time, will realise the international community’s vision of a de-nuclearised Korean Peninsula, free from the fear of conflict.
