United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, called for the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula after he met North Korean formal leader Kim Yong-Nam during the opening ceremony of the Pyeong Chang Winter Games on Friday. Guterres met the 22-part North Korean designation, which was driven by Yong-Nam. He also welcomed North Korean pioneer Kim Jong-un’s more youthful sister, Kim Yo-jong during a dinner meeting.
Guterres also met with South Korean President, Moon Jae-in, on Friday and communicated trust the Winter Olympics will open a “window of chance” for stronger diplomatic efforts between the two Koreas, so as to denuclearise the promontory, as announced by the South Korean presidential office. Previously in the day, Moon met the North Korean appointment at the South Korean presidential office, Cheong Wa Dae (Blue House).
The North Korean delegation’s visit to South Korea was the first trip since August 2009, when a high-level North Korean delegation attended the funeral of former South Korean President Kim Dae-Jung, who held the first-ever inter-Korean summit with then North Korean leader, late Kim Jong-il, in 2000.
