‘The President’s Tour’ workshop
The comments were apparently aimed at the US Congress
Noo “worst disaster” 與 “attack gone over”
Kim Eun-hye “It’s for our National Assembly, not the United States”
Rumors between Korean and Japanese leaders in ’30 minute talks’
Noo “Going to the Prime Minister of Japan with a one-sided affair”
Korean Prime Minister: “Something that can be done in an informal meeting”
On the 22nd, the opposition and opposition parties engaged in a brawl over President Yoon Seok-yeol’s visit. The opposition parties focused their firepower on diplomacy saying ‘full empty, submissive, and talkative’, and the power of the people defending it, saying, ‘The attack on the president has crossed the line’.
Minjoo Party floor leader Park Hong-geun talked about the ’30-minute meeting’ with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and the ’48-second conversation’ with US President Joe Biden at the general assembly of the House of Representatives on the same day, saying, “President Yoon does not have empty-handed diplomacy.’ create it. I don’t know where the country is going.”
On the other hand, said Rep. Yoon Sang-hyun, of People’s Power, on Facebook, “The attacks of the opposition and the media on the president go beyond the limits and harm the national interest.” How can you despise the president’s efforts to somehow resolve the perverse relationship between Korea and Japan?” he asked.
After attending the ‘7th Global Fund Fiscal Commitment Meeting’ the day before, President Yoon made a comment that appeared to be aimed at the US Congress, saying, “If the National Assembly does not endorse these people, Biden will be offended.” In response, Kim Eun-hye, head of public relations in the presidential office, objected that President Yoon said, “If the National Assembly (of Korea) does not approve it and ‘fly’.” President Yoon made a promise about the government’s financial contribution, but he was concerned that the promise could not be realized if the opposition party which has the right to review the budget opposes it.
In the questions of the National Assembly in the fields of education, society and culture, Democratic legislators focused on highlighting the diplomatic situation, from the failure to sympathize with Queen Elizabeth II of England to the debate about offensive language. On the other hand, People Power lawmakers seemed to be defending themselves regarding President Yoon’s visit.
Democratic Party lawmaker Lee Byung-hoon said, “The camera caught President Yoon swearing while meeting the US president for 48 seconds. Prime Minister Han Deok-soo said, “I think you have said enough things you want to say.”
Kim Won, a member of the same party, asked, “President Yoon and President Biden met for 48 seconds in a standing conversation, greetings in effect, but is this the entire Korea-US summit?” Prime Minister Han said, “A reception must have been held immediately after the meeting.
Representative Kim asked the prime minister about the brief talks between Korea and Japan, saying, “President Yun went to the Japanese prime minister after a one-sided affair and had a conversation without giving up the Taegeukgi.” Prime Minister Han said, “Isn’t it something we can meet at the Poolside (informal talks)? In that case, there would be no (Taegukgi). “
Meanwhile, Justice Minister Han Dong-hoon said in relation to the Democratic Party’s discussion of impeachment against him, “I wonder if it is a word that can be repeated so lightly.” Asked by Senator Kim Seung-soo, who said the Democratic Party is talking about putting it up as an official agenda in the general assembly of lawmakers, Minister Han replied, “The people will decide whether to investigate crimes and the defense of the people is the basis for impeachment.”
