[The Chosun Ilbo, October 29 2007] Declaration to End the War or to Praise Roh Moo-hyun?

Addressing confusion within the government over a declaration to end the Korean War envisaged in a document at the end of the recent inter-Korean summit, a presidential spokesman announced last Friday the Roh Moo-hyun administration would pursue a "declaration to begin negotiations to end the war." The declaration that Cheong Wa Dae is talking about involves the leaders of the two Koreas, the United States and China gathering to announce the end of the war on the Korean Peninsula.


If it’s that difficult to abandon this fixation, going so far as to rename it “a declaration to begin negotiations to end the war,” why don’t they just rename it “a declaration for Roh Moo-hyun?”
