Ban Ki Moon Welcomes Political Dialogue Between Seoul, Pyongyang

(MENAFN- QNA) UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has welcomed the high-level political dialogue that took place between the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

"It is encouraging that the two parties agreed to hold another round of high-level talks soon," Ban said through his spokesperson.

The agreement to hold more talks came as officials from both countries met yesterday on the margins of the closing ceremony of the Incheon Asian Games, according to UN news center.

In a statement that followed, Ban reiterated his hopes that the concerned parties will continue to build positive momentum toward a peaceful and denuclearized Korean peninsula.

The UN chief has repeatedly emphasized that dialogue is the only way to resolve outstanding issues related to the peninsula.
