Wednesday marks the tenth anniversary of the October fourth 2007 summit declaration of the two Koreas.

Although Seoul did not issue a specific anniversary statement, a Unification Ministry official said South Korea respects previous inter-Korean agreements, including the 1972 joint declaration, the 1991 Inter-Korean Basic Agreement, the June 2000 joint declaration and the 2007 summit declaration.

The ministry called on Pyongyang to uphold all existing accords between the two Koreas and work to improve cross-border relations and advance peace on the Korean Peninsula.
