Meeting of Korean States’ Leaders

(Communicated by Foreign Ministry Spokesman)
April 11, 2000

The government of Israel has learned with satisfaction about the planned historic summit meeting to be held between the leaders of South and North Korea.

This meeting will be the first opportunity since the beginning of the Korean war for a direct dialogue between the two countries and the two leaders, and we hope it will contribute to the development of a peaceful resolution of the conflicts in the Korean peninsula.

Israel hopes that the harsh current reality of separation between the two parts of the Korean people will be replaced, at the end of the process, by cooperation, peace and prosperity.
