South Korean archbishop calls for denuclearization

Catholic World News - March 07, 2013

As North Korea threatens a nuclear attack against the United States and South Korea inaugurates a new president, Archbishop Andrew Yeom Soo-jung of Seoul has called for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

“The Church proposes to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, and a peaceful way to achieve this goal is necessary,” said the prelate, who is also apostolic administrator of Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital. “The Church will engage in prayer and try to make gestures of solidarity. The solution of the inter-Korean conflict is that of dialogue.”

“Meanwhile, our diocese helps North Korea, providing humanitarian assistance through Caritas,” he added. “The Korean Church cares about the people of North Korea and the evangelization of the country. This is why we trust in the Lord.”
