S. Korea to Join Global Effort to Prevent Violent Extremism

South Korea pledged Thursday to actively join the global effort to prevent violent extremism.
Speaking at the White House summit on countering violent extremism, Cho Tae-yul, second vice foreign minister, said violent extremism is expanding into many parts of the world. He said South Korea is not an exception, citing a local teenager who recently joined Islamic State militants in Syria.
U.S. President Barack Obama, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and 60 other representatives from governments and international organizations participated in the summit.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said summit participants were in unison that governments should work together to help alienated classes in each country become incorporated into society, and provide more economic opportunities partly through education.
They ministry said they agreed to take follow-up measures before a UN General Assembly meeting in September and host a summit-level conference to assess progress.
