U.S. pharmaceutical company Moderna plans to provide South Korea with 7 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine in the coming two weeks, Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum said Sunday, following a supply disruption due to a production issue at the company. "Moderna has notified the government that it will provide a total of 7 million vaccine doses over the next two weeks," Kim said during a daily interagency meeting on the government's coronavirus response. The announcement was made following a South Korean government delegation's visit to the headquarters of Moderna on Aug. 14 to protest a delay in the company's vaccine provision. Earlier, Moderna notified Seoul of its plan to supply less than half of the 8.5 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccine scheduled for August due to a production issue.


U.S. considering housing Afghan evacuees at American bases in S. Korea: report

The United States is considering using American military bases in South Korea as one of the housing sites for evacuees from Afghanistan, along with other overseas bases, including those in Japan, the Wall Street Journal has reported. The Pentagon is "looking at American bases in Japan, Korea, Germany, Kosovo, Bahrain and Italy" as existing housing sites in Qatar and elsewhere are filling up quickly, the paper reported Saturday (U.S. time), citing unidentified officials. The report also said the White House is expected to consider activating the Civil Reserve Air Fleet to have major U.S. airlines help with efforts to transport tens of thousands of Afghan evacuees from bases in the region. Dulles International Airport, outside of Washington, D.C., is expected to become the central processing site for a surge of Afghan evacuees, it said.

Seoul's foreign ministry said the two countries are in talks about vaccines but denied that vaccines will be provided for free. "Reports about the Romanian government providing vaccines for free are not true," the ministry said in a text message to reporters Saturday night. "Discussions are under way between our country and Romania from the context of a vaccine swap.".

The top nuclear envoys from Russia and the US are in Seoul to hold talks with their South Korean counterpart on the stalled nuclear diplomacy with Pyongyang amid fresh tension over ongoing US-South Korea military exercises. Sung Kim, the US special representative for North Korea, arrived here Saturday for a four-day visit, days after Pyongyang warned of a “security crisis” over the joint military drills that are due to end Thursday. I’m looking forward to very close consultations with our Korean government colleagues,” Kim told reporters upon arriving at Incheon Airport. Kim said he will also meet with Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov, who arrived here Saturday for a six-day visit. So, I think it is going to be a very productive visit,” said Kim. Kim met with Foreign Minister Chung Eui-yong on Sunday afternoon and discussed ways to restart the stalled peace process on the Korean Peninsula at an early date.

Second-tier banks urged to tighten lending amid soaring household debt

South Korea’s financial watchdog has called on second-tier banks to tighten lending standards on their extension of personal unsecured loans, as part of a move to curb ballooning household debt, industry sources said Sunday. The Financial Supervisory Service had sent a message to the Korea Federation of Savings Banks on Friday urging its member companies, including savings banks and mutual financial cooperatives, to keep the maximum amount of credit loans allowed for individuals below their annual earnings, the sources said. The FSS noted that loan demand from households has remained at a high level, buoyed by ample liquidity amid the record-low interest rate environment, they said. In general, savings banks’ ceiling for personal credit loans is between 100 million won and 150 million won ($85,000-$127,000). Financial authorities plan to closely monitor second-tier financial institutions’ efforts to set up tighter supervision of household debts, with a goal of maintaining the growth rate of household loans in second-tier banking circles to below 21 percent.

'Fake news' law revision draws concern from international journalists

A number of international media organizations have shown concerns over the Korean liberal ruling party's push to amend a law to impose punitive damages on media outlets and reporters for producing "fake news," which they say may curtail freedom of expression. Despite mounting calls to scrap the plan, the revision is very likely to go through, as the ruling Democratic Party of Korea (DPK), which holds a supermajority in the National Assembly, remains firm with its plans to pass the revision bill in the Assembly's Aug. 25 plenary session. As a preliminary step before the plenary session review, DPK members of the Culture, Sports and Tourism Committee of the Assembly approved the bill, last Thursday. A day after the committee's endorsement, the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) released a statement Friday, calling for the repeal of the bill, which "represses freedom of expression." The IFJ criticized the bill for relying on a "fundamental misunderstanding of fake news" and that "subjective laws are a poor form of regulation."


Korea's strategic importance growing amid US-China tensions

The deepening tension between the United States and China has shed new light on the geographical and strategic importance of Korea, as each of them stage military drills with their allies in and around the Korean Peninsula.

The agency reported the bombers were escorted by Sukhoi Su-35 fighters, but did not elaborate on the route. And it was unknown whether South Korean fighter jets were scrambled in response to the flight.

Hezbollah 'Digging Tunnel with N.Korean Technology'

The armed insurgents group Hezbollah in Lebanon has dug a network of tunnels for military purposes with North Korean technology, a report claims. In the report published on Aug. 12, the Alma Research and Education Center, an Israeli think tank, claims Hezbollah signed a US$13 million technology transfer contract with Korea Mining Development Trading Corporation (KOMID), a North Korean state-owned entity that specializes in tunneling. Based on this technology, Hezbollah has dug a 45-km network of tunnels that connects its three strongholds from the Bekaa Valley in the east to Beirut and Southern Lebanon. Hezbollah, which is an Iranian-funded group of Shia Islamists, had help supervising the project from Iran's Revolutionary Guards, the report claims.


IPI Slams Planned Changes to Korean Media Law

The International Press Institute on Tuesday expressed serious concerns that revisions to the media law that the ruling Minjoo Party is pushing will discourage critical reporting. The proposed bill would allow people to sue the media for punitive damages caused by "fake news." The IPI warned that "the bill could be used to silence critical reporting of those in power, particularly ahead of the presidential election next March, thus endangering press freedom in [Korea]." "At a time when authoritarian governments are increasingly adopting so-called 'fake news' laws to stifle criticism, it is disappointing to see a democratic country like [Korea] follow this negative trend," IPI Deputy Director Scott Griffen was quoted as saying. Other domestic and overseas organizations are also opposing the bill, from the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers and the Korean Society for Journalism & Communication Studies to the Korean Bar Association.

Their net profits surpassed W85 trillion, a whopping 3.5 times as high as the same period last year. According to Korea Exchange on Thursday, the sales of 587 KOSPI-listed companies that filed their business reports stood at W1.08 quadrillion in the first six months, up 17.5 percent on-year. That meant they earned W91 trillion in operating profits, up 2.2 times, and W85.1 trillion in net profits, up 3.5 times. Even without counting Samsung Electronics, their operating profits increased 155.9 percent and net profits a staggering 381.4 percent.

China steps into Middle East role as US retreats

As the US shifts the focus of its foreign affairs and national security policy from the Middle East to the Asia-Pacific region in an effort to target China, China has been proactive about moving in turn to fill the power vacuum. In particular, Beijing has been stepping up its diplomatic efforts with the Islamic world, including increased communication with Middle Eastern countries amid the chaos following the US withdrawal from Afghanistan. According to a report Thursday in China’s state-run Xinhua news agency, a 5th China-Arab States Expo opened that day in Yinchuan, capital of the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region in western China. A census last year put the population of Ningxia at around 7.2 million, of whom 38% are members of the majority-Muslim Hui ethnoreligious group.


Court orders seizure of Mitsubishi Heavy’s assets in S. Korea to pay forced labor victims

With Mitsubishi Heavy Industries having yet to comply with a ruling ordering it to provide compensation to victims of forced labor mobilization during the occupation, a court has seized cash for a South Korean company that was meant to go to the Japanese corporation. Some observers say that this could mean a greater likelihood that forced labor mobilization victims receive their compensation. An investigation by the Hankyoreh on Wednesday found that the Anyang branch of Suwon District Court ruled on Aug. 12 to accept a seizure and collection order request submitted against Mitsubishi Heavy Industries early this month by one forced mobilization survivor and family members of three other victims who have died. The plaintiffs were demanding the confiscation of bonds related to the payment that the corporation was meant to receive from a South Korean company for items.


S. Korean delegation returns from meeting with Moderna with no results

After Moderna announced a disruption in its supply of the COVID-19 vaccine to South Korea, a government delegation visited the company's headquarters in the US but returned without confirming the vaccine delivery in August and September or finding a way to stabilize the supply. The two sides also discussed having some of the Moderna vaccines that are supposed to be produced by Samsung Biologics distributed domestically, but Seoul said that would "take a considerable amount of time," suggesting that won't be an option in the third quarter of this year. "We strongly requested Moderna to send us the undelivered vaccine by August or early September if at possible, to accelerate the timetable for the scheduled vaccine, and to quickly give us a concrete delivery schedule," Second Vice Health Minister Kang Do-tae, a member of the government's delegation, said in a press conference on Tuesday.

The ruling Minjoo Party of Korea took a unilateral action on a revised bill to the Act on Press Arbitration and Remedies, etc. to apply punitive damage compensation to media outlets in a plenary meeting of the National Assembly’s Culture, Sports and Tourism Committee. The party plans to make its way through the Legislation and Judiciary Committee next Tuesday and the plenary session of the legislative body next Wednesday. With the March 9 presidential election 200 days away, the ruling party is making another uncontrollable legislative rush. Bringing an agenda coordination subcommittee under the culture, sports and tourism committee into complete control in coalition with the Open Democratic Party on Wednesday, the ruling party convened a plenary meeting at 11 a.m. next day. A crowd of 40-plus political leaders including People Power Party Chairman Lee Jun-seok chanted in front of the committee’s meeting room to condemn the ruling party for committing “press suppression” but to no avail.


Afghan president abandons country while brother supports Taliban

A controversial footage was relieved on Saturday showing wealthy business leader Hashmat Ghani, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani's younger brother, shaking hands with armed group Taliban's leadership grinning from ear to ear. While Hashmat has supported Taliban on social media day after day, there is growing public resentment against the Ghani brothers as the president evacuated overseas with a large amount of cash in possession immediately on Aug. 15 when Taliban took control of the capital city of Kabul. Taliban on Saturday published a video of its leaders including Khalil al-Rahman Haqqani in charge of its military organization gathering around Hashmat, shaking hands with one another and posing for commemorative photos in an amicable mood. One of Taliban's leadership kisses Hashmat's forehead and another senior gives a pat on his shoulders as if he encouraged and supported him according to the Taliban-provided video clip.

The parliamentary Culture, Sports and Tourism Committee held a plenary session and passed the Press Arbitration Act. Of the sixteen members of the committee, nine lawmakers--Democratic Party members and Open Democratic Party lawmaker Kim Eui-kyeom--voted in favor of the amendment.

Korea’s domestic spending recovery still uncertain amid Covid-19 resurgence fears: ministry

The South Korean economy faces continued uncertainty around private consumption as the pandemic resurgence and tougher virus curbs are taking a toll on face-to-face service sectors, while exports remain robust and the job market has improved, the finance ministry said Friday. The country’s economy appears to be on a recovery path thanks to robust exports and improving job market conditions, but the latest flare-up in Covid-19 cases could heighten uncertainty over an improvement in domestic demand, particularly in in-person service sectors,” the Ministry of Economy and Finance said Friday in its monthly economic review named Green Book for August.
