COURTESY OF THE PACIFIC CENTURY INSTITUTE — We are pleased to share PCI board member Dr. Chung-in Moon’s recent interview in a South Korean TV news special on “North Korean Killing of a South Korean Government Worker at Sea: Getting to the Bottom of the Truth with Moon Chung-in” that aired on Arirang News Center on Tuesday, September 29, 2020 (KST).
From Ariang News Center in Seoul: “Kim Jong-un is not known for apologies; least of all to his southern neighbor. But after his army shot and killed a South Korean man in North Korean waters, the North Korean leader made a rare show of remorse.
“On Monday, a South Korean government worker on a ship went missing. He was found by North Korean soldiers adrift at sea. South Korea says the man was shot, killed and burned at sea. In a letter to South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Chairman Kim Jong-un called the killing “disgraceful affairs.” He said he had disappointed the South Korean people.
“Despite the rare apology, public and political outrage continues to grow here in South Korea and tensions are rising on the peninsula…. Joining us live in the studio is Moon Chung-in, Special Advisor to South Korean President Moon Jae-in for Foreign Affairs and National Security. Professor Moon, great to have you with us….
