Korea and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) held their annual meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) building in Seoul on October 29. The United Nations body and the Korean government discussed ways to enhance mutual cooperation to further a common goal: the nurture of and care for children all around the world. 

At the 10th Korea-UNICEF Annual Policy Conference, the Korean and UNICEF delegations, led by Deputy Director General Kim Moon-hwan of the MOFA’s International Organizations Bureau and UNICEF’s Deputy Executive Director Yoka Brandt, respectively, examined Korea’s funding contributions to the international organization. 

The two sides also exchanged constructive opinions on how to push ahead with impending bilateral cooperation projects and strengthen mutual cooperation in terms of humanitarian assistance and emergency relief. 

The two parties agreed to beef up the evaluation and monitoring of their new cooperative projects set to be conducted in Nepal, Cambodia, Rwanda and Ghana. They expressed grave concern about the dire situation facing women and children in Syria, whose human rights have been trampled on by the endless bloodshed there. With one voice, both delegations called for enhanced humanitarian assistance to the war-torn country. 

Based on the Framework Agreement signed in September 2009, Korea and UNICEF are expected to increase their cooperation and to carry out the projects as discussed during this Seoul conference.
