As Pope Francis reaffirmed his intention to visit North Korea with President Moon Jae-in, interest in the feasibility of it is being raised. This is because if the pope’s visit to North Korea proceeds at the invitation of North Korea, a breakthrough in inter-Korean-North Korea-US dialogue can be made and the spark of peace on the Korean Peninsula can be revitalized.

President Moon Jae-in had a private interview with Pope Francis without an attendee at the Vatican Vatican on the 29th and officially proposed a visit to North Korea, saying, “If the Pope has an opportunity to visit North Korea, it will be a momentum for peace on the Korean Peninsula.” To help, for peace I am willing to go. Aren’t you brothers who speak the same language?” he replied.

In 2018, the Pope has repeatedly declared that he will act as a messenger of peace on the Korean Peninsula, including an unwavering intention to visit North Korea in response to President Moon’s proposal.

During the interview, he presented a ‘Peace Cross’ made of scrap barbed wire used in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). President Moon said, “There is also a saying in the Bible that spears are melted to make plowshares. In addition, it contains the meaning of peace on the Korean Peninsula.”

In addition, these 136 ‘Peace Crosses’ are exhibited under the theme of ‘Barbed Wire, Become Peace’ at the Santa Nhacio Cathedral in Rome, Italy, drawing the world’s interest in peace on the Korean Peninsula.

Meanwhile, after meeting with the Pope, President Moon, who attended the G20 summit, met US President Joe Biden briefly at the summit lounge and conveyed the Pope’s intention to visit North Korea. In response, President Biden said, “It is good news,” and said, “We are making progress (resolving the Korean Peninsula issue, etc.),” ​​the Blue House reported.

In addition, these 136 ‘Peace Crosses’ are exhibited under the theme of ‘Barbed Wire, Become Peace’ at the Santa Nhacio Cathedral in Rome, Italy, drawing the world’s interest in peace on the Korean Peninsula.
