Winelcome ni Bayan Muna Partylist Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate ang makasaysayang meeting nina North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un at South Korean President Moon Jae-In.
Ayon kay Zarate, na miyembro ng Philippine-Korea Solidarity Committee for the Reunification of Korea, magandang balita ito para sa mga mamamayan ng Korea na matagal na hinati ng imperyalismo.
“This landmark meeting of the Korean leaders is an opportune reminder that a peaceful, principled and just settlement of conflict is a viable option, outside of the hawkish saber-rattling, that can be pursued,” sabi ng kongresista.
Kasabay nito’y sinabi ni Zarate na dapat gayahin ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang peace efforts ng Korea partikular ni Kim.
“We also challenge Pres. Duterte to emulate the bold initiatives of the Korean leaders, particularly Kim Jong Un, by also hastening the completion and signing of the comprehensive agreement on social-economic reforms, which is a the center of the GRP-NDFP peace negotiations,” sabi pa ni Zarate.
