SEOUL, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- South Korea set up a five-year basic plan under President Park Geun-hye for its policy towards the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), Seoul's Unification Ministry said Wednesday.
The meeting of the committee for enhanced inter-Korean relations was held to deliberate on the basic plan for Seoul's DPRK policy over the next five years, the ministry said in a statement. The meeting was presided over by Unification Minister Ryoo Kihl-jae.
The basic plan was based on Seoul's perception on recent political situations at home and abroad as well as President Park' s trust-building process and policy goals, the ministry said, noting that the plan will be reported to lawmakers before being made public.
The plan comprised two policy goals and four basis directions. It aimed to improve inter-Korean relations through the trust- building process and prepare for reunification with the DPRK to develop the so-called "small union" such as the economic cooperation into the bigger one, that is a political union.
The four directions included balanced management between security and cooperation, creating conditions for the DPRK's change, gradual preparations for future reunification and the DPRK policy contributing to regional and world peace.
In order to achieve the goals, South Korea will push for government-to-government talks and the implementation of the agreement reached during the talks. Reciprocal exchange and cooperation between the two Koreas will be deepened further, and efforts will be made to normalize the Kaesong industrial complex in a progressive way.
