SEOUL, Dec. 9 (Korea Bizwire) -- President Moon Jae-in lauded Irish rock band U2 on Monday for its continuing efforts to promote peace and help address various problems facing the world, as he met the leader of the group at Cheong Wa Dae.

"Since the unification of Germany, South Korean people's aspiration for peace and unification of the South and the North have become stronger," Moon said during the meeting with Bono.

Pool reporters were allowed to cover the first few minutes of the session.

He talked about U2′s first-ever concert in South Korea, which was staged at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul a day earlier. First lady Kim Jung-sook attended it.

"Generally when I open my mouth, people prefer if I'm singing," Bono said. "But on U2X RADIO, maybe they'll forgive me the odd interruption"

U2 are getting a channel devoted exclusively to their music on SiriusXM sometime next year. "[U2X Radio] will feature music from U2's acclaimed decades-long career," the company said in a statement. "Never before heard interviews and live concert recordings; favorites and surprises from the archive; band curated playlists sharing personal influences both new and old; plus content celebrating their Dublin roots and much, much more."

The band will join the Grateful Dead, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Frank Sinatra and a handful of other artists that have their own channels on the satellite radio network. "Generally when I open my mouth, people prefer if I'm singing," Bono said in a statement, "but on U2X RADIO, maybe they'll forgive me the odd interruption."

In statements, the other members appeared ambivalent about the news. "I'm not entirely sure what this, is but what it isn't is an opportunity to hear some bass solos," Adam Clayton said. "U2 24/7. Welcome to the last 43 years of my life."
