Simultaneous Admission of the two Koreas to the UN

Even before the Inter-Korean Summits held in 2000 and 2007, an atmosphere of reconciliation emerged as a result of the South Korean government’s northern diplomacy. As a result, the two Koreas agreed to join the UN simultaneously at the 46th UN General Assembly in September 1991.

Their simultaneous admittance to the UN had historic significance, as it brought to an end the legitimacy controversy between the two countries and ushered in an era of reconciliation and coexistence.
