Clark, Kissinger and South Korea

PM Helen Clark was the keynote speaker at the 50th anniversary celebrations of the end of the Korean War held in South Korea in July. At a luncheon held in her honour, President Roh Moo Hyun described her as “a remarkable global figure” and “a role model for all women.” During her stay, Clark also met with former US Secretary of State and Nobel Prize winner, Henry Kissinger. Clark – a former anti-Vietnam activist – had “a fascinating discussion” with the man responsible for the Vietnam War ceasefire, although the two agreed to disagree on NZ’s ongoing anti-nuclear stance.
