° In addition, given that a number of CICA Member States are partners for the ROK’s New Southern Policy and New Northern Policy, the Ambassador will stress that the ROK government’s foreign policy and CICA’s goal to step up exchanges and cooperation among the Asian countries can produce synergistic effects.


3. The CICA Summit, which will take place in five years since the one in 2014, is expected to serve as an opportunity to take the confidence among the CICA Member States to the next level and for the ROK government to win broader support from the international community on its diplomatic efforts to achieve denuclearization and establish permanent peace on the Korean Peninsula.
