» View News & Updates List  

The National Association of Korean Americans (NAKA) honored CISAC (Center for International Security and Cooperation at the Stanford University) co-founder John Lewis on March 23 for his longterm efforts to support peace and reconciliation in Northeast Asia.

NAKA President Kuhn Seo visited CISAC to present a plaque honoring Lewis for his efforts promoting the Six-Party Talks and reducing political tension between North and South Korea.

The plaque recognizes Lewis for his "contribution to reconciliation and peaceful settlement on the Korean peninsula." Seo said an op-ed titled, "Activating a North Korea policy," that was published recently in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has been widely circulated within the Korean-American community and helped bring Lewis´ efforts to wide attention. "He is highly respected in North Korea and South Korea as an educator," Seo said.
