Description
On June 5, 1981, the newly-created Advisory Council on Peaceful Unification Policy meets for its first session.

This is an occasion of utmost meaning for the entire nation, that has long been praying for the peaceful unification of our fatherland. Created under Aticle 68 of the new Constitution, the advisory council is designed to put together the voices of people in every walk of life and bring forth national consensus on peaceful unification, and advise the President on policies to be made for its realization.

In his policy address for the new year 1981, President Chun Doo Hwan stated that unifying our people of one race, one language and one culture into one independent democratic country is the supreme national task before us. With the inauguration of the pan-national council, it has now become possible to demonstrate our strong unification will to the world and fortify the foundation of unification.

Consisting of more than 9,000 members, representing not only all the regions of the country including the five Northern provinces, but also the Korean residents abroad, the political parties and various occupational and social groups, the advisory council is truly in a non-partisan, pan-national position to fill the leading role of pushing through the supreme task of unfying our land.

The Ministry of Communications issues this stamp in commemoration of the auspicious inauguration of the Advisory Council on Peaceful Unification Policy, ardently praying that the Council will be successful in performaing its task of unifying a divided nation into a glorious, democratic country which we will proudly leave behind us for descendants.
