Confidence Building Measures Seminar between GCSP and the Institute for Disarmament and Peace from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, DPRK

Following two previous meeting, the GCSP and the Institute for Disarmament and Peace (IDP) from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), held the third round of their Confidence Building Measures (CBM) Seminar last week in Switzerland. It was held in the context of the current opening dynamic between the DPRK, the US and the Republic of Korea. This seminar allowed the participants to better understand the different perspectives and to clarify possible outcomes. In an informal and open setting, this track 1.5 meeting, supported by MFAs from both sides, was very successful. The meeting offered Switzerland the opportunity to reassert its support for a peaceful diplomatic process in the region. All participants favour the continuation and consolidation of the CBM process in close future.
