A Peace Treaty – The first step to peace on the Korean Peninsula

Following a recent high level visit to Seoul and a meeting in Brussels with the representatives and diplomats of North Korea, Nirj Deva MEP announced during a visit to Washington DC that it is time to sit down and write a peace treaty between the two Koreas.

Nirj Deva, Chair of the European Parliament Delegation for the Korean Peninsula (North and South Korea), following a recent high level visit to Seoul and a meeting in Brussels with the representatives and diplomats of the North Korea announced during a visit to Washington DC where he had meetings with high level officials that after 60 years of tensions and ineffective dialogue based on an armistice, it is time to sit down and write a peace treaty between the two Koreas.

In relation to recent events, Nirj Deva stated: “The development of peace on the Korean Peninsula can only be achieved under the auspices of a peace treaty. Signing a peace treaty, one which is recognised under international law and supported by the international community is the only logical way to neutralise this conflict and to restore normality between these two nations.”

Mr Deva took the view that cognisance should be given to the debate taking place in Japan on their peace constitution and that now is the time to stabilise the situation in the Korean Peninsula.

Nirj Deva went on to state: “Creating peace on the Korean Peninsula is key to ensuring an environment of peace and stability in North East Asia, a region which today is not only changing quickly but one which remains in a state of unpredictability. I will be working hard in the coming months to discuss the prospect of such a peace treaty between the two Koreas with all relevant parties to see what steps will need to be taken to make this a reality”.
