Abstract

The ‘Peaceful Utilization of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ)’ is a prerequisite condition for building a new peace regime on the Korean Peninsula, signifying the transition from a ‘symbol of conflict’ between North and South Korea into a ‘symbol of cooperation.’ The Lee Myung Bak administration had selected the peaceful utilization of the DMZ as one of its ‘100 national policies,’ but it was unable to bear fruit due to the deterioration of inter-Korean relations. The new administration that will be launched in 2013 must reorganize unification and North Korea policies based on a new vision for the nation. These policies must ease the tension and conflict between the two Koreas and also maximize South Korea’s national interests. The DMZ must be transformed from a symbol of conflict and confrontation into a platform of peace and cooperation where North and South Korea can coexist. (The rest omitted)
