The Institute of Korean Studies at Kookmin University (President Jeong Seung Ryul), together with the Shanghai Foreign Studies University's Center for Sino-Korean Cooperation Studies and the Korea-China Permanent Committee for the Search for Dr. Ahn Jung-geun (Chairman Hwang Gi Cheol, hereinafter referred to as the Committee), held the 2nd International Conference on the Search for patriot An Jung-Geun at the Songjiang Campus of Shanghai Foreign Studies University on Saturday, June 29th.

 

 

patriot An Jung Geun's remains have not been found 114 years after his death. Korean and Chinese figures agreed that finding the remains of patriot An Jung Geun is the first honor to the martyrs and the way to peace in the East, and established a committee at the civilian level. On the academic level, the Institute of Korean Studies at Kookmin University is collaborating with the committee to solve the national question.

 

 

The conference was attended by former Chinese Ambassador to Korea Chu Guohong, former Party Secretary of Shanghai Foreign Studies University Jiang Feng, and Director of the Center for China-ROK-Japan Cooperation at Shanghai Foreign Studies University Ren Dequi, as well as South Korean professors Hwang Gi Chul(former head of the National Veterans Affairs Administration), Kim Tae Sung(former commander of the Marine Corps), and Hwang Sun Ik(professor of Korean History at Kookmin University).

 

 

The participants exchanged various opinions based on the theme of 'Strengthening China-ROK relations through cultivating the spirit of Ahn Jung Geun'. "China plans to actively cooperate in the search for An Jung Geun's remains, but we will also actively seek ways to overcome the somewhat cooled relations between China and North Korea while taking into account the views of the North Korean side, including the opinions of the residents," said Chu Guohong, former Chinese ambassador to South Korea.

 

 

"Ahn Joong-geun is a symbol of pacifism, and as the sites for exhuming his remains are mainly concentrated in China, we should investigate them so that we can honor him now," said Hwang Gi Chul, former head of the National Archives and Records Administration. "We should work together to fulfill the will of patriot An Jung Geun during his lifetime."

 

 

"The conference, which recalls patriot An Jung Geun's oriental peace spirit, is a meaningful achievement given the tense bilateral relations between the two countries," said Hwang Sun Ik, professor of Korean history at Kookmin University. "The two countries should seek practical results through various exchanges, including the conference."
