Creative Family Solution
There are people who meet for eternal separation. After almost 70 years of life, I have enjoyed the joy of the moment. It is useless to hug me and say & # 39; Let's not fall apart again & # 39 ;. The eyes and spirits of the ideology and the system do not let the bloodlines and thunderstorms escape. The idea that human society can be so inhumane and ruthless makes us think. It is a conversation about the reunification of divorced families from North Korea. I look at the problem of the divorced family in the "farewell reunion", a combination of languages that can no longer be cruel in the world.
The reunion atmosphere of the separated family is as fast as the sky of the Mt. In the short schedule of 2 nights and 3 days I enjoy the joy of the reunion first and then I predict that I will eventually break. So on the second night, the faces of the divorced family and the divorced family are filled with heavy silence and dark shadows. The cry of "I would rather not see you" was a painful trauma of reunion trauma.
It is a three-day meeting, but only 11 hours can be done with the real family. The 70 years are divided into 613.200 hours, so the stage of the reunion is a short moment when the eyes are closed. Go to the Geumgang and enjoy a reunion party and a welcome dinner. The next day, after the reunion and a lunch lunch in the room, the & farewell meeting & # 39; the last day.
Farewell are tears. During the two-hour meeting, the final greetings come to the families and relatives who can not come to the meeting. I promise to give you an address and say & # 39; Let's meet again when we are united & # 39 ;, but nobody knows that it is not right. One family is set up on the square in front of the Kumgangsan Hotel and the other family leaves the bus. The return of the North Korean family is more heartbreaking. It is because of the North Korean guide's control that it is not easy to get close to the bus. It is slower to move your hand at a distance.
This reunion was the 21st since the reunion of August 15, 2000. There was no reunification at the time of the first and third divorced families, when the two Korea & # 39; s held reunions in Seoul and Pyongyang in the same time. An official from the Ministry of Unification said: "When we went to the place of reunification in Mt.
The reunion was only two years and ten months since October 2015. The number of reunions and the size of the reunions are not as long as we consider the older family as separated by their relatives with disabilities. According to the Ministry of Unification and the Red Cross of Korea, the total number of applicants for family gatherings at the end of July is 132,484. Seventy-five 5425 people died and 50.7059 people were waiting for a reunion order. If you are reunited once a year, you would have to wait 570 times. It takes more than 500 years.
In contrast to the desperate family members, the government is not ashamed. The unification ministry reported yesterday that it will consult on a full scale with the North on matters such as confirming the status of life and death, visiting their birthplaces and regularizing reunions through the next Red Cross talks on the unification of diplomatic ties. However, criticism is that the North is not the only way to work proactively in resolving disputed family problems. It was because of the misunderstanding that, although the agreement between the two Korea & # 39; s and the "Reimbursement of regular reunions" is included in the agreement every time the Red Cross speaks. In addition to the intermittent reunification of North Korea as a result of inter-Korean relations, it was difficult to find an increase in the number of reunions that reflected the will of our government.
Moon Jae-in said on the 20th that Chong Wa Dae's chief and adviser meet on the 20th that the reunion ceremony began: "We should attend the regular reunion ceremony, the confirmation of life and death, reunification, reunion, correspondence. He also emphasized the continued operation of the Kumgangsan family, but it is difficult to achieve the policy goal of resolving the fundamental problem of the separated family problem only at this level of instruction.It is pointed out that a more decisive attitude and a strategic approach is needed.
Above all, Kim Jong-un seems willing to achieve visible results through a dialogue with the North Korean leader. The two Korea & # 39; s have agreed to hold summits in September. The talks in Pyongyang will focus on the implementation of the issues agreed at the April summit in Panmunjom. During the high-level talks between South and North Korea on the 13th, we proposed to modernize the railways and roads in North Korea and to support the forests in North Korea. The South Korean performance of the North Korean art group, planned for autumn, was also discussed. It all has significance for the promotion of inter-Korean relations with the dismantling of North Korean nuclear weapons.
However, it is not comparable with the urgency of the problem of the separated family. Parents, children and brothers and sisters have come to reunite with the older family, who are desperate for more than 3,600 people each year. In the past month alone, 316 people have closed their eyes. Four months ago it seems that Pyongyang has worked with Pyongyang in Panmunjom and that there is no problem in the case of Kim Jong Eun and Moon who have reached a consensus on the banner "our nation". It is also in line with the spirit of people first & # 39; Moon has confessed.
To solve the problem of divorced families, it is good to use the "Exception for North Korea sanctions" card. The people who cast a look at North Korea's coal imports through a hole in the sanctuary are also able to close their eyes when it is due to the reunion. The Trump government, which was sent back to the remains of American troops that were killed in North Korea at the time, also had major problems with humanitarian issues.
If you are willing to hand in the money right away, you can use the "debt relief" approach. It is an idea to lead the North Korean authorities to respond to the problem of the divorced family, even if we give $ 10,000 (the 11.7 million money won) for the reunion event. Taeyoung Ho, a North Korean official in the UK, confirms that "only the dollar can move Kim Jong Eun". It can also reduce the dissatisfaction of the reunion agency. A month before the disaster-related family event, there is a small burden on the institutions taking charge of the situation because they collect the rendez-suit on the north side, bathe every day, give good food, take a time to go and take shoes, bags and gifts in their suits It is true that you feel it.
In the end, the debt of our related authorities is $ 930.6 million ($ 1.405 trillion) of debt that North Korea has not repaid. It concerns 2.4 million tons of rice, railroad, road materials and equipment, etc. To borrow per loan. Most were donated during the Roh Moo-hyun and Kim Dae-jung administrations. It is enough to reunite all 57,000 people waiting for the reunion ($ 570 million at $ 10,000). It is one of the ways to get rid of even more farewell reunions. The spirit of Freikauf (meaning buying & # 39; freedom & # 39;), which the Western government paid to bring democratization and political prisoners into the free world, is also effective in solving the problem of divorced families.
