Three Charters of National Reunification Monument Pyongyang Reviews
Monument for the desire of a reunified Korea May 05, 2010
Just on the outskirts of Pyongyang, on the Tongil Expressway stands the Monument to the Three Charters of the National Reunification.
It was constructed in 2001 for the wish that both Koreas will be reunited. The statue are of 2 women, one on each side of the side with their arms raised up and they both hold a map of an unified Korea in their hands.
The Three Charters stand for: the principles of independence, a peaceful reunification and a great national unity. The North Koreans only see one Korea happening when the US oocupation of the South ends and Kim Il Sung leads one Korea.
This monument is another demonstration of their construction skills and eye for details, but if their wish will ever come through, remains to be seen. In my opinion both Koreas will become one, but with a different leader.
