Book presented to President of South Korea

Yesterday I met with Lord David Alton of Liverpool and he told me that today he is meeting with Park Geun-hye, the President of South Korea and the office’s first female incumbent. He said he would give her a copy of our book, Building Bridges: Is there Hope for North Korea?

This is exciting for me for obvious reasons. It is also exciting because (as Wikipedia could tell you) Chapter 3 of South Korea’s Constitution says the top three duties of the president are as follows:

    • uphold the Constitution
    • preserve the safety and homeland of the Republic of Korea
    • work for the peaceful reunification of Korea

Bearing in mind that our book calls for re-engagement with North Korea with a view to peaceful reunion of the Koreas, I could not be happier that Ms.Park will receive a copy.

Ms.Park took office earlier this year with a pledge to “enact a ‘trust-building’ process” (BBC) and only yesterday the Wall Street Journal reported more encouraging comments. I hope our book encourages her in her bridge-building work.
