ULAANBAATAR, July 16 (Yonhap) -- President Park Geun-hye on Saturday pointed to North Korea as a "missing link" in the effort to achieve a free, peaceful and interconnected Eurasia, saying the unification of the Korean Peninsula will offer a "fundamental" solution.

Speaking at a retreat session of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) summit, Park made an emphatic call for international cooperation in Seoul's efforts to lay the groundwork for national reunification.

"The last puzzle that would complete the ASEM's vision to create 'one Eurasia' is the unification of the Korean Peninsula," Park said during the gathering of the top officials from more than 50 countries including China, Russia, Germany and Japan.

"(I) also believe that the unification of the Korean Peninsula is the only fundamental solution to North Korea's human rights violations and nuclear problem," she added, stressing that a unified Korea will be the "starting point" to achieving a nuclear-free world.
