It is with great dismay that the Permanent Secretariat of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates has learnt of the death of the Mayor of Seoul, Park Won-soon.

Our thoughts and condolences are with his family, colleagues and the people of Seoul.

Members of our team met with the Government of the City of Seoul in December last year, to announce a partnership between the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates and the City of Seoul. The Permanent Secretariat continued to work with the Government of the City of Seoul during the past few months.

We remain committed to our partnership and to the people and the City of Seoul and Korea.
