Baird Visits DMZ Between North and South Korea

Baird visits the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea

March 27, 2012 - Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird today completed his week-long Asian trip with Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Before leaving, Baird visited the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea.

“To visit is to witness missed opportunity of the highest order,” said Baird. “May the North Korean people one day reach their full potential—free and prosperous.”

Baird was attending the 2012 Seoul Nuclear Security Summit and, as part of the same trip, also travelled to Japan and Thailand with the Prime Minister.
