The Republic of Korea's presidential office stressed on Wednesday the need for discussing arms control and military trust-building with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to lay the groundwork for discussing a peace framework on the Korean Peninsula when conditions become ripe.

The report, titled National Security Strategy, said that actual arms control will be pushed for when military trust-building makes progress between the ROK and the DPRK, and the issue of building a peace framework will be discussed "when conditions are ripe".

The report, comprising eight chapters on defense, unification and diplomacy, stressed the need for starting an inter-Korean discussion "at an appropriate time" on arms control and military trust-building to reduce the possibility of armed conflicts and military tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
