NEAR Secretary General Kim Ok-chae took part in the 22nd East Sea Rim Forum hosted by the Institute of Global Affairs (IGA) at Kyunghee University on Mon. May 11. There, he gave a 90-minute special lecture on the ‘Ancient Korean-Japanese Exchange History’ to researchers and professors including Director Kim Jun-yeup who was in charge of the forum. There, opinions on the overall relationships between Korea and Japan were exchanged.


During the special lecture, Secretary General Kim presented historical resources that indicated that the southern part of Korean peninsula and the Yamato Court of Japan were in fact political and military alliances until the end of the 7th century AD. Also, he emphasized that when the citizens of both countries ruminate on the spirit of exchange of ancient ancestors instead of being buried in the memories of the modern and contemporary times, true historical reconciliation is achieved, and future-oriented relationship is constructed.




Meanwhile, in the E-JOURNAL 36 issued by the IGA once a quarter, Secretary General Kim’s special lecture contents and special introduction on NEAR will be published.
