The following are the congratulatory remarks twelve Korean governors and mayors gave at the Summit for Peace Assembly & One Million Rally.

Park Hyung Jun, Mayor of Busan

My heartfelt congratulations on the successful hosting of the 2022 Summit for Peace on the Korean Peninsula. I would also like to express my deepest gratitude to leaders and experts around the world who will gather wisdom for realizing lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula.

Kim Yeong Rok, Governor of South Jeolla Province

I sincerely congratulate the hosting of the Think Tank 2022 Summit for Peace on the Korean Peninsula along with our two million residents in Jeollanam-do.

The Summit for Peace on the Korean Peninsula has greatly contributed to the reunification of the Korean Peninsula and world peace, a long-cherished desire of our people.

It is even more pleasant and reassuring to hear that representatives of over 157 countries with diplomatic ties to North and South Korea will be gathered together to strengthen their resolve to establish world peace and reconciliation on the Korean Peninsula.

I hope that today’s event will be a valuable opportunity to gather wisdom on how to improve the relationship between North and South Korea and plant hope for peace and reconciliation in the Korean Peninsula.

Lee Yong-seop, Mayor of Gwangju

I would like to express my gratitude to UPF co-founder Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, the Family Federation, UPF members and everyone involved in making this meaningful event possible.

In the meantime, we have made numerous promises for the reunification of the Korean Peninsula.

Now, by keeping that promise, we must put an end to the era of conflict and confrontation and move forward on the path of reconciliation and peace.

Song Ha-jin, Governor of North Jeolla Province

Congratulations on successfully hosting the Think Tank 2022 Summit for Peace on the Korean Peninsula.

I hope that this peace summit on the Korean Peninsula will become a warm breeze that melts the frozen relationship between the two Koreas.

Yang Seung-jo, Governor of South Chungcheong Province

First of all, I would like to express my deep respect and gratitude to UPF co-founder Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon for hosting this meaningful summit.

Distinguished guests, the era for reconciliation on the Korean Peninsula can be accelerated with our efforts. Although we are now disconnected and communication is difficult, I think we are in process. In difficult times, we need more patience and to work harder.

In addition, I would like to ask leaders from all around the world to join forces for lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula.

Peace on the Korean Peninsula will go beyond the development of North and South Korea and lead to great prosperity and coexistence in Northeast Asia.

Lee Si-jong, Governor of North Chungcheong Province

My sincere congratulations on the hosting of the Summit for Peace on the Korean Peninsula and One Million Rally for National Salvation.

Peace is a universal value for mankind and a gateway to safety and prosperity. In particular, for us, as the only divided country in the world, peace can only be our greatest desire.

Efforts that have contributed to world peace through the practice of interdependence, mutual prosperity and universal values are giving great hope to people around the world.
