of Optimism Evident at International Leadership Conference in Korea
Seoul, Korea - More than 550 experts and officials from over 90 countries met
at the 2018 UPF International Leadership Conference (ILC). The IAPP delegates
from 70 countries hope that the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang will
serve as a substantial opportunity to resolve the North Korean nuclear issue
and improve North-South relations. Beyond the Pyeongchang Olympic Games, the
2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo and the 2022 Winter Olympics in China will
stimulate relations between the leaders and national parliaments of Korea,
China and Japan, with a view to furthering the prosperity of Northeast Asia
and the realization of world peace. Furthermore, Korea, China and Japan are
strongly urged to sign the agreement of the “Peace Road Project,” linking the
undersea tunnel project between Korea and Japan and the Korean peninsula
railroad system with the Eurasian railroad and transportation network. The
parliamentarians attending the 2018 International Conference clearly offer
their active support and cooperation for the above-mentioned undertakings.
