Youths to march for reunification

Hundreds of youths from 22 countries will march along the southern side of the inter-Korean border at the end of this month, according to the Ministry of Unification yesterday.

The ministry said a total of 625 youths from South Korea and 21 other countries that fought in the Korean War on behalf of the South will participate in a commemorative event, the “March for Peaceful Unification,” between July 26 and July 31. The event marks the 60th anniversary of the start of the war on June 25, 1950.

“We arranged this event to help youth be aware of the reality of Korea as a divided nation by letting them look into its past, including the Korean War, and give them a chance to dream of the peaceful unification of Korea,” one official said.
