About 1600 people, including 300 Korean residents in Japan, gathered at the Imjingak to pray for the peaceful reunification of South and North Korea. Doves were released expressing hope for the reunification of Korea and the establishment of the DMZ World Peace Park.

This followed a condolence message sent from Kim Jong-un, the Supreme leader of North Korea, to Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, co-founder of the Universal Peace Federation and Family Federation for World Peace and Unification to mark the one-year anniversary of the passing of the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, according to North Korea’s chief news agency.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), North Korea’s official wire service, quoted Kim Jong-un, “I pray for the repose of Rev. Sun Myung Moon, who worked for harmony and prosperity of the Korean people, the unification of Korea and world peace.” He added that he wishes that Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon and her family would inherit and carry forward Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s will and also sends his best wishes to their work.
