[정치]South Korea-Canada Summit in a little while… Watching the waves after getting an explanation of ‘remarks of honor’

[앵커]

President Yoon Seok-yeol, who continues his tour of the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada, will hold a summit with Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau this morning from our perspective.

This is the final schedule of this trip, and key mineral supply chains and the latest scientific and technological collaboration are the main items on the agenda.

Controversy is still there after President Yoon’s clarification of tainted remarks, but the presidency office has not made an additional position and is keeping an eye on the ripples.

I moved from Toronto, Canada to Ottawa. Are there any talks taking place there?

[기자]

That’s okay.

About an hour ago, Air Force Unit 1, on board President Yoon Seok-yeol and his wife, arrived at Ottawa Airport.

The Korea-Canada summit will be held during the afternoon of the 23rd local time and this morning according to our time to look for the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, followed by a joint press conference.

The main agendas include supply chain cooperation for Canada’s abundant core minerals used in batteries, and scientific and technological cooperation with Canada, which leads in high-tech industries such as artificial intelligence.

In a written interview with Canadian media before the summit, President Yoon said he expects to expand trade in the high-tech industry through key mineral supply chain cooperation on the summit’s priorities.

At the same time, he said he is very interested in increasing the number of liquefied natural gas and LNG suppliers in Canada.

Regarding China’s growing influence in the Indo-Pacific region, he explained that it is important for China to fulfill its responsibilities as a member of the international community and contribute to peace and prosperity in the Intai region.

This is the first time that President Yoon has personally visited the other country and held an official summit.

After the summit, YTN will broadcast the joint press conference of the two leaders live.

With this meeting, President Yoon’s tour schedule will come to an end, but the effect of profanity comments is not small to talk about the results of the tour.

[기자]

The presidential office aggressively rebutted 14 hours after President Yoon’s tainted comments were made public.

The first target was not the US Congress, but our opposition party.

And he claimed he said “if you blow it, not Biden,” and that it was woven and distorted as if he was mocking the allies in 1970.

It is interpreted as an explanation that was not a reproach towards the US Congress and President Biden, and it is interpreted as a diplomatic risk.

The presidential office said it was an explanation that came out with confidence through professional voice analysis and confirmation from the president himself, but

The argument is further supported by comments that he did not explain or apologize for using profanity and that he was targeting the opposition.

First of all, the president’s office has not made any further positions or explanations until a day after the official briefing.

It seems they are considering a countermeasure while keeping an eye on the waves, but having finished the tour schedule with the Korea-Canada summit, I am interested in meeting up on a plane on the way back home, or if that is the case. , whether the relevant situation should be disclosed.

So far, this is YTN Park So-jung from Ottawa, Canada.
