Arch of Reunification – The arch of Korean peace in Pyongyang

A sculptural arch, officially Monument to the Three-Point Charter for National Reunification. It was opened in August 2001 to commemorate Korean reunification proposals put forward by Kim Il-sung.

The concrete arch straddles the Reunification Highway leading from Pyongyang to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone). It consists of two Korean women in traditional dress, symbolizing the North and the South, leaning forward to jointly uphold a sphere bearing a map of a reunified Korea.
