Many of the dignitaries attending the dedication ceremony for the sixth Pacific Rim Park on Jeju on Aug. 7 looked surprisingly casual beside the student architects and workers who had donned their best outfits for the event. Jeju Governor Woo Keun Min, U.S. Ambassador to Korea Kathleen Stephens and Prof. Moon Chung In of Yonsei University were some of those sporting Jeju Hawaiian-style shirts, having just come from an Olle walk as part of a conference associated with the park project.

Stephan Haggard of the University of California, San Diego, Korea Pacific Program and a board member of the Pacific Rim Park Project, said he and Moon planned the conference around the completion of the park. Titled “Toward a Regional Security Architecture for Northeast Asia,” the conference was intended to foster discussion, especially among South Koreans, Haggard said, on how to advance negotiations on the stalled six-party talks.

“A lot of time was spent discussing the question of where Lee Myung Bak should go with respect to North Korean policy. That in turn has influenced U.S. policy because the Lee Myung Bak administration has demanded an apology from North Korea before the six-party talks can reconvene and the U.S. is in a sense now tied to that.”

There was also discussion of what would be required in a peace treaty to replace the existing armistice against the divided countries. Hosted by the East Asia Foundation and the UCSD Korea-Pacific Program and held at the Jeju Peace Institute, participants came from Korea, the United States, China and Europe.

A third cluster of issues in the roundtable discussion was the different reactions of different countries to the sinking of the ROK navy vessel Cheonan, Haggard said.
