SEOUL, South Korea – South Korean cardinal, Andrew Yeom Soo-jung has called on the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un to embrace dialogue so as to douse the tension in the Korean Peninsula.
Soo-jung made the remarks just as Kim Jong-Un and President of the United States, Mr. Donald J Trump continued to trade words, threatening war.
Kim Jong-Un had threaten to attack Guam, a U.S pacific territory where the U.S had its bombers, missile defence system and other arsenals, forcing Trump to threaten “Fear and Fury”.
North Korea has also been reported as threatening to fire four intermediate-range ballistic missiles to waters near Guam in protest.
“I can’t help but worry about North Korea’s nuclear and missile crisis,” the archbishop of Seoul said in his message to mark the 75th anniversary of Liberation Day and the Assumption of Mary, both falling on Aug. 15.I pray for North Korea to realize the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, give up on armed confrontation and come to the dialogue table to ease tensions.
“Real peace is not achieved by the balance of power but by activities based on love… I call on the leadership to consider peace as the very first value (we need to pursue) and lead our society on the path for the common good,” he said.
