“An important issue in putting an end to the division of the country and achieving its reunification is to remove confrontation between the north and the south,” said Kim. “The past records of inter-Korean relations show that confrontation between fellow countrymen leads to nothing but war.”

“The industrial revolution in the new century is, in essence, a scientific and technological revolution, and breaking through the cutting edge is a shortcut to the building of an economic giant.”

What any of this amounts to in terms of concrete plans remains to be seen.
