June 16-18 Conference To Call For A "Roadmap" For Korea
June 12, 2003, WASHINGTON, D.C. -- As the Korea crisis deepens, Korea experts from U.S. and Korean churches, humanitarian agencies, the United Nations, academia and other sectors will convene June 16-18 in Washington, D.C., to press for a "Korean Roadmap" for lasting peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula.
It is expected that consultation participants will renounce military options and call for stepping up of diplomacy and humanitarian aid. Their recommendations will be shared with Congress, the White House, the State Department and the Pentagon.
They are being called together by the humanitarian agency Church World Service and the National Council of Churches USA. CWS, the NCC and their 36 member denominations have been working together with their North and South Korean counterparts for more than two decades in peace building, reconciliation and humanitarian assistance.WHAT:
