President Moon attended a service at a Buddhist temple on Tuesday to join in prayers for peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.
Speaking at the service he emphasized the Buddhist principle of ' Hwajaeng'.. meaning "mutual respect and harmonization." in pushing forward inter-Korean relations.
The most urgent task ahead of us is the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and that is a goal that should be accomplished peacefully. Let us pray in the ardent hope that the spirit of 'Hwajaeng' is realized and that conflict and division is eradicated."
