Afro Asian People's Solidarity Organization AAPSO welcomes the historic agreement between the leaders of North and South Korea, and the United States North Korean Summit.

The Panmunjom Agreement, which was signed at the 2018 Inter-Korean Summit by the Republic of Korea's President Moon Jae-in and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, among a range of peace-building initiatives, the Panmunjom Agreement includes a commitment to the denuclearisation of the peninsula.

AAPSO deeply moved by the step made towards a new history of reconciliation and peace on the Korean peninsula, and many around the world also moved by the powerful image. Also AAPSO respects the agreed promises in the Declaration that are of significance for a peaceful coexistence, prosperity, and for reunification in the Korean peninsula.

AAPSO support number of items in the agreement, including the commitment to replace the 1953 armistice treaty with a peace treaty by the end of this year; and efforts to "build a long-lasting and stable peace in the peninsula through complete denuclearization, the agreement to transform the demilitarisation zone into a "peace zone" and to establish a peace zone in the West Sea.

AAPSO fully support the commitment to cease all hostile military acts.

AAPSO strongly support the agreement to ensure the participation of civilians in the reunification process as seen in the decision to establish a joint liaison office and to resume the reunion steps of the separated families, we hope that the agreements are thoroughly enforced to ensure the end of the 70-year-old separation and conflict, and to bring long-lasting peace in the Korean peninsula.

Furthermore, AAPSO hope that through the North Korea-US Summit next month, there will be permanent peace in the peninsula and we ask that all countries, civil societies actively support.
