UNITED NATIONS GROUP OF EXPERTS ON GEOGRAPHICAL NAMES (UNGEGN)
Recognizing the desirability of a single romanization system for each non-Roman-alphabet language,
Recognizing also that the subject of romanization, as referred to in resolution 15 of the Fourth United Nations Conference on the Standardization of Geographical Names, is of paramount concern to the conferences,
Noting the adoption of new guidelines for the romanization of Korean by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Korea, following Ministry Directive number 84-1 of 13 January 1984,
Noting also that the guidelines have been applied since that date in the maps and gazetteers published by the Korean authorities,
Recommends that the guidelines (see E/CONF.79/INF/68), be referred to the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names for consideration as the single international system for the romanization of Korean geographical names.
