Minister Schetyna (스헤티나)‚
Human Rights Defender Lipowicz (리포비츠)‚
Chairman Pawtas (파브워시)‚
Ladies and gentlemen‚
Just before coming here‚ I paid a visit to the Warsaw Ghetto Heroes Memorial. I was struck by the memory of German Chancellor Willy Brandt’s historic gesture of apology to Poland‚ the people of Poland and the Jewish community at that very site in 1970. That was already 45 years ago‚ but that moment is still deeply engraved in my memory. And it crossed my mind that the memorial has become not only hallowed ground for commemoration‚ but also for reconciliation as well.
That visit also reminded me of the many similarities and parallels between Korea and Poland. Geographically‚ both have strategic locations‚ in Central Europe and Northeast Asia respectively‚ surrounded by major powers. Historically‚ both have had a fair share of daunting challenges‚ with tragic spells and proud achievements.
Seventy years ago‚ both Korea and Poland were liberated from the scourge of war. For us Koreans‚ this was followed by the outbreak of the Korean War five years later. We take pride in what we have achieved since then‚ the “miracle on the Han river‚” but for Korea‚ true liberation will not be complete without the peaceful reunification of the two Koreas. Therefore‚ it is our solemn duty to build up trust between the South and the North‚ and lay the groundwork for peaceful unification.
In this context‚ I was greatly inspired by the wise counsel of my Visegrad Four colleagues when they highlighted the importance of the smooth transition to a market economy and a vibrant democracy in the Korea-Visegrad Four Foreign Ministerial meeting two years ago. Last year‚ former Prime Minister Bielecki (비엘레키) further elaborated on this point at a joint Korea-Visegrad Four seminar‚ focusing on the case of Poland. He pointed out the importance of the geopolitical landscape‚ the timing and technical support‚ elements which I believe will also be important in the process of Korea’s peaceful unification.
But today‚ we would like to learn from Poland another invaluable lesson from the post-War period. That is about reconciliation with its neighbors. My part of the world‚ Northeast Asia‚ is still charged with tensions and conflicts emanating from historical issues‚ whereas Europe’s integration and prosperity owe a lot to the post-War reconciliation between Poland and Germany. Like President Komorowski said‚ quote‚ “it was a miracle of reconciliation that Europe put its hatred behind it and that a younger generation of Poles and Germans were able to work and study together‚” unquote.
However‚ we should remind ourselves that this reconciliation did not come out of the blue. It was the outcome of the patience‚ perseverance and courage of many people over the course of long years.
One month ago‚ I had an opportunity to visit the Berlin-Schoeneweide Forced Labor Information Center. There‚ I could witness Germany’s efforts to face its past and heal the wounds of the 12 million victims of forced labor from across Europe‚ including Poland. These kinds of information centers were all over Germany. My overarching impression was that Germany is truly a textbook case of remembering the past. Germany’s sincere apologies and its deeds to make up for the past‚ together with Poland’s magnanimity and forgiveness‚ were true acts of courage. They have become the cornerstone of Europe’s present peace and prosperity‚ and have helped realize human dignity. I believe Europe should be proud of this accomplishment‚ and genuinely hope Northeast Asia will echo this historic feat.
That’s because the example of Poland and Germany has a clear lesson for Northeast Asia. Avoiding reconciliation will only extend the hurt and erode the tr
