Spirit 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.
