At a 70th war anniversary event held at Seoul Air Base, Moon said the Korean War has not been commemorated in a genuine manner yet, because the war has yet to come to an end.

Moon said the Korean Peninsula remains technically in a state of war because the three-year war ended with an armistice rather than a peace treaty. He expressed hope that North Korea will “boldly embark on an endeavor to end the most sorrowful war in world history”.

He said South Korea has no intention of imposing its system on North Korea and emphasized the importance of establishing peace before anything else.
