Speech at the National Assembly in Korea



President Hak Ja Han Moon spoke in a congressional meeting room at the National Assembly Building in Yoido at ten o'clock in the morning of October 31, 1993.

In front of an audience of two hundred, including present and former assembly members, their assistants, representatives of various religions, the academic world, and women leaders, Mrs. Moon delivered her address True Parents and the Completed Testament Age. She pointed out that "all humanity, rather that being satisfied with the end of the Cold War, needs to work to unite the democratic and communist worlds, that is, to reunite the divided North and South Koreans"  and asserted that "the paramount task is the accomplishment of the peaceful reunification of South and North Korea so that Korea can become the motherland of all humanity and be looked upon with respect."

A leading assembly member, in delivering the welcoming address, acknowledged that while former and present heads of state and prominent Nobel prize-winning scholars regularly visited Korea inspired by Reverend Moon's teachings, the Korean people did not know these teachings. Further, that Korea should take heed of the fact that people from 150 nations who have connected with these teachings view Korea as the motherland of faith.
