President Moon releases Vice Chairman Lee of Samsung in Liberation Day parole

Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong of Korea’s top business conglomerate, Samsung, was released on parole on August 13 on the occasion of the Liberation Day of Korea on August 15 after his internment for two years and six months on charges of involvement in “Kukjeong Nongdan” (which translates “abuse of authority, unauthorized use of state power, coercion, fraud, monopoly,” etc.). President Moon Jae-in said, “We know that there are different opinions on the release of Mr. Lee but we thought that it is appropriate to share the view that Mr. Lee’s contribution to the healthy economy of Korea is very important.” Former President Madam Park Geun-hye is in prison on similar charges. Many people are wondering what would happen in case of the government’s change in the future, and hope that the unfortunate happening would stop.

US National Security Adviser: No Intent to Withdraw US Troops from S. Korea, Europe

U.S. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said on Tuesday that President Joe Biden has no intent to withdraw its troops from South Korea and Europe. Sullivan made the remark during a press briefing when asked about U.S. President Joe Biden's Monday speech in which he said that the U.S. military cannot make sacrifices where there is no national interest. Asked if Biden's comment applies to U.S.' allies as well, including South Korea, Sullivan said that the president has no intention of drawing down U.S. troops from South Korea or Europe. He added that the country has sustained a troop presence for a very long time in those regions, not in the middle of a civil war, but to deal with the potential of an external enemy and to protect its ally against that external enemy.

He said the friendship of the two nations grew stronger through time, expressing hope that they will enhance further bilateral cooperation for friendship and progress as next year marks the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties. In response, President Tokayev said that the two nations are friends by destiny, noting that the remains of Korean freedom fighter and general Hong Beom-do were repatriated from Kazakhstan.

 

Trial Begins in Oct. in Damage Suit against N. Korea Involving Settlers from Japan

A trial will begin in October in Japan concerning a compensation case lodged by Korean Japanese people who relocated to North Korea decades ago under a government program, but fled the country and returned to Japan. The five plaintiffs are suing the North Korean government for five billion won in reparations. According to Kyodo News, the Tokyo District Court will hold the first hearing on oral proceedings on October 14. On Monday, the court initiated procedures through service by public notice that will have the effect of serving judicial documents to North Korea. Under a bilateral treaty on repatriating ethnic Koreans in Japan to North Korea, many were relocated to the North between 1959 and 1984. The first vessel carrying 975 people departed from the Japanese port of Niigata in December 1959.

S. Korean, Kazakh leaders agree to bolster strategic partnerships on new industries, climate, peace

The leaders of South Korea and Kazakhstan agreed during their summit talks here Tuesday to deepen and expand their "strategic partnerships" in various sectors, including those related to the fourth industrial revolution, public health, space exploration and climate. President Moon Jae-in noted that his Kazakh counterpart Kassym-Jomart Tokayev has become the first foreign leader to visit South Korea since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. He arrived here Monday for a two-day state visit to reciprocate Moon's trip to the Central Asian nation in April 2019. "I hope that relations between the two countries will further develop, like those of brother ones," Moon said at the outset of the Cheong Wa Dae summit.

 

Delta variant cases near 14,000, 1 more delta plus variant infection reported

South Korea has confirmed 3,014 more cases of four major contagious variants of the new coronavirus over the past week, including 2,594 of the highly transmissible delta variants, health authorities said Tuesday. The caseload of such infections reached 13,780 here, with the number of delta cases, first reported in India, tallied at 10,421, according to the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA). The tally indicates that the delta variant is increasingly becoming the dominant strain of COVID-19 here, making it more difficult for health authorities to curb the spread of the new coronavirus. The delta variant is behind a recent spike in COVID-19 infections in Seoul and its neighboring areas, while showing signs of spreading much faster into the rest of the country.


N. Korea sees ties with China as 'fundamentally distrustful': think tank

North Korea is economically dependent on China but views their relationship as fundamentally based on distrust, a U.S. think tank said Tuesday. The Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington, D.C. also said that China is unwilling to solve the North Korean issue as it views Pyongyang through the lens of competition with the United States. "Therefore, real practical cooperation between the U.S. and China on denuclearization is limited," the think tank's office of congressional relations said in a report, titled "Wilson Memo: The Unique Relationship Between China & North Korea." "On one hand, there is a chance that North Korea may be willing to denuclearize if it feels comfortable with China expanding its nuclear umbrella over North Korea. However, any agreement in this realm would clash with the ideology of juche, therefore making it unlikely," it added.

NK views its relations with China as ‘fundamentally distrustful:’ think tank

North Korea views its ties with China as “fundamentally distrustful,” despite its economic dependence on its largest trading partner, a US think tank said Tuesday. In a report titled “Wilson Memo: The Unique Relationship Between China & North Korea,” the congressional relations office at Washington’s Woodrow Wilson Center analyzed China-North Korea relations to help US policymakers make informed policy on the North. North Korea is relatively dependent on China, as it accounts for 80 percent of North Korea’s external trade. However, North Korea views its relationship with China as something that is fundamentally distrustful,” it said. The mistrust between Pyongyang and Beijing can be attributed mainly to the North’s ideology of “juche,” or self-reliance, and more specifically dates back to historic events such as the Minsaengdan Incident in the 1930s, a massacre of ethnic Koreans by the Chinese Communist Party, according to the report.

 

Korea, Kazakhstan agree to boost ties in Seoul summit

President Moon Jae-in and visiting President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev of Kazakhstan on Tuesday held summit talks and pledged to further expand the strategic partnership between the countries. The Kazakh president arrived in Seoul on Monday for a two-day state visit, becoming the first foreign leader to visit the country since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also a return visit for Moon’s visit to the Kazakh capital of Nur-Sultan in 2019. This is the first state visit since the pandemic began. Your visit shows the special friendship between the two nations,” Moon said during the summit that lasted for about an hour earlier in the day. The president again expressed gratitude to the Kazakh people for Sunday’s return of the remains of Gen. Hong Beom-do, a legendary independence fighter who led major battles against Imperial Japan. Hong died in Kazakhstan in 1943.

 

Compliance, chips and vaccine ‘top priority‘ for Samsung’s Lee

Samsung Group’s de facto chief Lee Jae-yong is going full speed ahead after returning to the office Tuesday, tending to tasks waiting for his attention at Samsung Electronics. On Tuesday, the first working day since his release from jail Friday, the Samsung vice chairman reported to his office at Samsung’s headquarters in Seocho, southern Seoul, early in the morning. Of all the items on his agenda, three appear to be of top priority: compliance, chips and vaccine. It was unclear whether Lee attended a monthly meeting of the external committee on Samsung’s compliance issues that was set at 2 p.m. at the Secho headquarters. While in jail, Lee vowed to continue supporting the committee’s activities, asking the committee members, including former Chief Justice Kim Ji-hyung to take responsibility.

Korea, Kazakhstan agree to expand strategic partnership

President Moon Jae-in and Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev agreed to expand their two countries' strategic partnership, Tuesday, in order to have bilateral ties cover new industries related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, public healthcare and space exploration. The leaders also commemorated the return of the remains of Korean independence fighter Hong Beom-do, stressing it was a symbol of the two countries' friendship. President Tokayev is on a two-day state visit to Korea at the invitation of President Moon, and is the first foreign leader to Seoul since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Tokayev, who arrived here Monday, is the first Kazakh president to travel to Korea in five years.

 

Moderna to increase vaccine supply to Korea in coming months

Moderna will increase its supply of COVID-19 vaccine this month and September, and make every effort to speed up the planned delivery of doses for next month, the Ministry of Health and Welfare said Tuesday. The U.S. pharmaceutical company will inform the ministry about specific shipment dates and amounts by the end of the week, the ministry added. This agreement was reached during a meeting between a government delegation and Moderna officials at the drug firm's headquarters in Massachusetts, Aug. 13 (local time). The delegation, led by Vice Health Minister Kang Do-tae, made the visit to deliver a protest on supply setbacks and discuss ways to resolve delayed vaccine shipments.

 

Revered independence fighter awarded medal 78 years after death

South Korea awarded a posthumous medal of honor Tuesday to Hong Beom-do, a historic independence fighter, whose remains returned from Kazakhstan two days earlier. President Moon Jae-in conferred the Order of Merit for National Foundation on Hong in a ceremony attended by Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev at Cheong Wa Dae. Hong, who served as commander of Korea's independence army, is revered for leading victories in the troops' battles against Japanese forces during the 1910-45 colonial rule, especially the Battle of Fengwudong in Manchuria, China, in 1920. He died in 1943 at the age of 75 in the Kazakh region of Kyzylorda. In 1962, the South Korean government bestowed on him the Presidential Medal of the Order of Merit for National Foundation.

                                                                                                               

 

Chosun Ilbo (http://english.chosun.com)
Korean Space Rocket Set for Launch in October

Korea's first fully homegrown space rocket Nuri will blast off into space on Oct. 21. The Nuri will put a 1.5-ton satellite into orbit 600-800 km above the earth. The country has spent around W2 trillion since 2010 on the development (US$1=W1,163). An earlier Korean rocket, Naro, was successfully launched in 2013 but the booster was made in Russia. The Nuri's launch was postponed twice due to technical glitches. The Korea Aerospace Research Institute will test launch the space rocket twice to check its functions. The first will involve a 1.5-ton dummy satellite and the second a 1.3-ton dummy satellite and a functioning 0.2-ton satellite. But the final launch date could change depending on the weather conditions, and the institute will first check if the rocket works in freezing temperatures.

 

Korea Launches New Missile Submarine

The Navy last Friday took delivery of Korea's first homegrown heavy-duty submarine, the 3,000-ton Dosan Ahn Chang-ho. The sub carries six vertical launch tubes for ballistic missiles. It was commissioned at Opko Shipyard in Geoje, South Gyeongsang Province. Korea is the eighth country after the U.S., the U.K, France, Japan, India, Russia and China to develop its own 3,000-ton sub. Most of the weaponry and others were developed domestically. Equipped with air-independent propulsion systems, the sub, 83.5 m long and 9.6 m wide, can stay underwater for up to three weeks, and is capable of sinking to a depth of more than 400 m. It cost W1 trillion (US$1=W1,166). It can launch ballistic missiles that are much faster than cruise missiles and harder to intercept.

 

Ex-President Chun Hospitalized for 'Cancer Treatment'

Former putschist President Chun Doo-hwan has been hospitalized after collapsing during his trial for defamation last week. Chun (90) apparently suffers from multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer, but Yonsei University's Severance Hospital in Seoul is conducting follow-up tests to be sure, sources said Sunday. On Aug. 9, Chun appeared in a Gwangju court in an appeals trial for defaming the late activist priest Cho Chul-hyun but left the courtroom after 25 minutes complaining of breathing difficulties. Prosecutors are appealing a suspended sentence given to Chun for defaming the priest, who gave an eyewitness account of the 1980 Gwangju massacre of democracy activists that happened at Chun's orders.

Moon says resolution to “comfort women” issue is about “not repeating” past in video message

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said a “resolution to the comfort women issue is about not repeating an unfortunate past,” in remarks on the eve of the National Liberation Day holiday on Sunday. He also said he planned to “work so that a future of forgiveness and reconciliation can flower on a foundation of historical truth created by the testimony of the [victims] and the efforts of civil society and academia.” Moon’s remarks came as part of a video message Saturday for the international memorial day for the “comfort women,” victims of wartime sexual enslavement by the Japanese military. It has been 30 years since the late Kim Hak-sun testified publicly about her victimization,” he noted. Reflecting on the meaning of Kim’s actions, he added, “With that one sentence she spoke 30 years ago — ‘I am Hak-sun, and I was taken by force to serve as a Japanese military “comfort woman”’ — the truth came into the world.”

South Koreans told pollsters that Gyeonggi Gov. Lee Jae-myung, the Democratic Party’s leading presidential candidate, is best-suited to being the country’s next president.

Coming in behind Lee were former Prosecutor General Yoon Seok-youl (18.1%), former Democratic Party leader Lee Nak-yon (11%), People Power Party lawmaker Hong Joon-pyo (4.8%), and former Board of Audit and Inspection Chairperson Choe Jae-hyeong (4.4%).

Akhundzada, the new supreme commander of Taliban

With the sunni militants grabbing power again in Afghanistan in 20 years, the leaders of the Taliban are drawing attention from the media. According to BBC, the current leader of the Taliban is a 60-year-old Islamic scholar named Hibatullah Akhundzada. Hailing from Kandahar, the southern part of the country and the stronghold of the militants, Akhundzada has served as the decision-maker of the Taliban since 2016 for its religious, political and military affairs. Dubbed “the Leader of the Faithful,” he is a reclusive leader who rarely makes public appearances. According to The New York Times, Akhundzada is bold enough being calm even when he was held at gunpoint by an assailant during his lecture. Rumors circulated that he was killed by the coronavirus last year, but it was denied by the Taliban.

Scattered Children: Three out of Five Return to Shelters

I felt so betrayed when I found out about the abuse. I was sorry to my child because I felt like I was making her suffer due to my unstable life. Then I got really angry at myself,” said A (26), on August 15. A had placed her daughter A-yeong (alias, 2) in the hands of Spring of Life Church in Seocho-gu, Seoul, an unregistered child welfare facility. The Spring of Life Church closed its doors in May after it was revealed that the children there had suffered abuse. The staff forced the babies and children to drink baby formula by themselves, provided poor meals, and shoved the children to the ground for complaining. Including A-yeong, there were only five children remaining when the facility shut down. Did the abused children find a safe home? With the help of Moving Youth Center EXIT, the Kyunghyang Shinmun tracked down the five children and checked how they were doing.
