With the recent success of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, the subsequent historic resumption of the Inter-Korea Summit on April 27 and the unprecedented talks between the United States and the DPRK counterpart to be held in May, favorable inter-Korean relations and the peace of the Korean peninsula are beginning to settle in. These visible outcomes are the result of the consistent messaging on unacceptance of neither the missile nor the nuclear program from the government of the Republic of Korea under President Moon Jae-in, who was inaugurated in May 2017. Enna Park, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and Ambassador for Public Diplomacy of the Republic of Korea, will introduce those diplomatic efforts of the government as well as its major policy for diversification of diplomacy, including the New Southern Policy.
