Koreas request circulation of summit declaration as official U.N. document

SEOUL, Sept. 7 (Yonhap) -- The two Koreas have requested that their April summit declaration aimed at enhancing relations and fostering a lasting peace on the peninsula be circulated as an official U.N. document, Seoul's foreign ministry said Friday.

Seoul's Ambassador to the U.N. Cho Tae-yul and Pyongyang's acting representative to the U.N., Kim In-ryong, sent a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Thursday (New York time), asking for the declaration's circulation at the General Assembly and Security Council.

The request is expected to help reaffirm the resolve of Seoul and Pyongyang to enforce the so-called Panmunjom declaration and secure international support for it, the ministry said in a press release.

The declaration contains a series of broad agreements to halt "all hostile acts" against each other, explore ways to enhance cross-border exchanges and pursue the complete denuclearization of the peninsula.
