We connect with reporters, reporter Jo Eun-ji!
Because of the ‘Itaewon disaster’, I know that the presidential office had trouble with the schedule of the trip abroad until the last minute.
Did President Yun explain the background?
Yes, today’s briefing on the way to work, and the ‘Itaewon disaster’ since the 28th of last month, and after a period of mourning and grieving, it was held in 13 days.
President Yoon explained that he had many concerns about whether to go on a diplomatic trip for people suffering from the shock and sadness of the ‘Itaewon disaster’, but explained that he decided to attend inevitably because it was an important event with activities national economic and interests at stake.
President Yoon will attend the ASEAN Summit in Phnom Penh, Cambodia from tomorrow, and the G20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia from the 14th.
President Yoon said that we in ASEAN announce our Indo-Pacific Strategic Principles and the ASEAN-Korea Unity Initiative based on freedom, peace and prosperity.
He also announced that the Korea-US-Japan summit had been confirmed and that additional bilateral talks were being discussed.
It is controversial that the presidential office banned MBC reporters from boarding private planes on this trip, but President Yoon said there was an important national interest at stake in the overseas trip.
[윤석열 / 대통령 : 많은 국민의 세금을 써가며 이런 해외순방을 하는 건 그것이 중요한 국익이 걸려있기 때문입니다. (기자 여러분께도) 외교 안보 이슈에 관해서 취재 편의를 제공해 온 것이고, 그런 차원에서 받아들여 주시면 되겠습니다.]
Yesterday, the presidential office announced that it was inevitable that MBC would not provide an opportunity for coverage to prevent this, saying that it had repeated diplomatic posturing and biased reporting.
In response, MBC said it would definitely host broadcasts on the site, even through other means of airing, as an act of clearly limiting media coverage.
A request for a national investigation was submitted to the National Assembly regarding the ‘Itaewon disaster’.
President Yoon dismissed this?
Yes, it was extremely negative.
In response to the reporter’s question of ‘how do you judge the need for a state investigation,’ President Yoon mentioned that the public expects the investigative agency based on scientific and mandatory investigations to find out the truth quickly.
He added that once the police investigation is conducted and sent to custody, the public want a faster investigation into the truth.
In addition, it would be good if you could comprehensively understand the exchange between Kim Eun-hye, senior head of public relations, and Kang Seung-gyu, head of civil society, at the National Assembly inspection in the National Assembly, saying, ‘You you’re funny’ he said it seems
There was also a question about the dismissal of Minister Lee Sang-min from the Ministry of Interior and Security, where the theory of responsibility was raised, but we could not hear an answer because it was the back view when the president entered the office. .
So far, this is Cho Eun-ji’s YTN from the Yongsan Presidential Office.
