Staying with the briefing. The foreign ministry outlined its plans to
resolve the North Korea nuclear issue peacefully… and ensure the safety of Koreans living and
traveling overseas. The key words are sanctions and dialogue…
with diplomatic engagement with Seoul’s closest allies and other major powers being crucial
elements. Connie Kim has the details. South Korea’s foreign affairs ministry will
work towards a peaceful resolution of North Korea’s nuclear issues and it will ensure
safety of its people abroad. These were the two main takeaways from the
ministry’s briefing to president Moon,… as part of a series of briefings by more than
20 ministries. It garnered extra attention as it came at
a time of heightened tensions on the peninsula with North Korea’s long-range ballistic missile
tests and the ongoing annual Seoul-Washington military drills. In resolving the nuclear issue peacefully,… Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha has vowed
close cooperation with Washington on all North Korea-related problems including reining in
its nuclear ambitions and bringing Pyongyang back to the negotiation table. Also a priority for the ministry was getting
China and Russia to take constructive actions — with their sizable influence on North Korea. While the foreign affairs ministry focuses
on protecting its people from nuclear threats at home,.. it will also be gearing efforts
on protecting its citizens abroad. Customized policies will be drawn up for some
7 million Koreans living abroad with strengthened measures for Korean travelers as well as establishing
a quick response system for incidents that occur overseas. (standup)
“The previous administration’s policy goals had focused on pressure and sanctions on North
Korea to put a break on its nuclear ambitions. The Moon government,… meanwhile is taking
a two track approach on Pyongyang–sanctions and dialogue. A major task for the ministry will be to make
sure this approach is effective when it comes to the North and in efforts from the international
community. Connie Kim, Arirang News.”.
