2017: Appeal to the Internat. Community
National Council of Churches in Korea (NCCK)
Urgent Appeal to the Internantional Community
Jeremiah 33:6 "Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security"
"War destroys all of us: we desperately appeal for peace on the Korean peninsula"
The international society is keeping a close eye on the Korean peninsula. Following the North Korea’s nuclear tests, dangers of war pose imminent threat to the Korean peninsula. There has been an ongoing “war of words” even in the United Nations, where peace should be pronounced. This war of rhetoric has led to the United States’ Air Force deployment of B1-B bomber beyond the Northern Limit Line (NLL) under South Korea’s silent consent. As a response, North Korea has claimed to exercise self-defense procedures against the US.
Peace cannot be achieved through arms. Armaments would only lead to the destruction.
