At the 2018 International Convention for Peace and Prosperity in Asia Pacific in Gyong, Gyeonggi province in South Korea, a North Korean official asked Asian nations to support the peace process between the two countries.
In an address, Ri Jong-hyok, vice chairman of the Korean Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, said that North Korea's summits with South Korea and the United States this year and subsequent joint declarations are a sign of peace in the region.
"Today, dramatic changes are taking place in both South and North Korea. All Asia-Pacific countries should actively encourage joint inter-Korean efforts for peace," Ri said.
Five North Korean officials arrived in South Korea Wednesday for the international peace forum organized by the Gyeonggi provincial government and a private peace foundation in Seoul.
Along with the forum, the delegation visited various cities and towns around Seoul, the South Korean capital, to tour business and innovation zones, and places of research.
