Geneva, Switzerland - UPF organized a forum on "The Role of Dialogue and Understanding Towards a De-Escalation on the Korean Peninsula and in East Asia" at the Palais des Nations (UN headquarters) in Geneva on Oct. 31, 2014.
Among the topics discussed was a proposal by South Korea to build a large regional UN complex inside the demilitarized zone that divides North and South Korea. The concept was raised informally by South Korea's President Park Guen-hye at the UN General Assembly in September. A more detailed proposal was presented by provincial and city officials at the one-day peace and security conference in Geneva.
Recordings are available of the four sessions:
