North Korea has invited a South Korean civic group to help organize a ceremony marking the 13th anniversary of a landmark inter-Korean declaration signed on June 15, 2000.
The declaration, signed by then-president Kim Dae-jung and former North Korean leader Kim Jong-il after the first inter-Korean summit, outlines five main provisions to be implemented by the two sides in hopes of a peaceful reunification.
They include resolving the reunification issue without foreign interference, tackling humanitarian issues like reunions of families separated by the Korean War, and developing trust through economic cooperation.
