China bans exports of 32 'dual-use' items to N.K.

China has banned exports of 32 items to North Korea that could be converted for use in developing weapons of mass destruction (WMD), Beijing's commerce ministry said Monday.The "dual-use" items are mostly equipment, software and technologies. They include particle accelerators and centrifuges, the ministry said in a statement posted on its website.The export ban is in line with Resolution 2375 adopted by the U.N. Security Council in September in the wake of the North's sixth nuclear test.The move followed the surprise talks between Chinese President Xi Jinping and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un held in Beijing last month.Following the meeting, speculation arose that Beijing might be easing up on its sanctions on Pyongyang. China is the closest ally and biggest trade partner for the reclusive state.

Finance minister urges parliamentary support for proposed extra budget

South Korea's chief economic policymaker on Monday urged the National Assembly to approve a proposed extra budget that he says will be used to tackle the country's chronic youth unemployment problem.

Finance Minister Kim Dong-yeon held a series of meetings with key officials from opposition parties, including Chang Byoung-wan, floor leader of the Party for Democracy and Peace (PDP).Early this month, the government unveiled a set of measures, including bolder financial and tax incentives and the use of a 3.9 trillion-won extra budget, to tackle the jobless rate among young people.The measures center on extending direct financial and tax incentives to young job seekers. The government also proposed broader support for startups launched by young people, with part of the financing to come from a supplementary budget.Despite various measures taken in the past, youth unemployment has consistently worsened, due mainly to structural changes in the country's industrial, educational and labor markets. This has led many young people to put off marriage, in turn leading to the very low birth rate.

Led by former Central Intelligence Agency chief Mike Pompeo, who awaits confirmation for his appointment as a secretary of state, the US intelligence officials have met with their North Korean counterparts several times in a third country to nail down a venue for the summit, US officials told CNN.

Samsung Securities fiasco exposes stock trading loophole

A South Korean brokerage mistakenly paying 1,000 shares in dividends instead of 1,000 won ($0.93) due to a computational error Friday has exposed a major loophole in the nation’s stock trading system, prompting immediate intervention by regulators.Starting Monday, the Financial Supervisory Service will launch an inspection into internal system flaws at Samsung Securities, the nation’s fourth-largest brokerage, where the incident happened last week, officials said Sunday. The authorities will also look into accounting management system of all brokerage firms and the trades of securities-linked futures.Apologizing for causing the public concern, Kim Yong-beom, vice chairman of the Financial Services Commission, said the government is taking the case seriously and will deliver countermeasures to restore market confidence.

South Korean gov't at odds with US think tank

Tension is mounting between the Korean government and the U.S.-Korea Institute (USKI), a think tank at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), after the government announced it would cut off its funding for the Washington, D.C.-based institute beginning in June. Since its foundation in 2006, the think tank, which runs 38 North specializing in North Korean affairs, has received 2 billion won ($1.87 million) from the government annually through the Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP) installed under the Prime Minister's Office. As its reasons for the cut-off, the KIEP cited "lax reporting on accounts and a lack of transparency in selecting visiting scholars and interns." To reform the management of the organization, the KIEP has reportedly requested the resignation of Jae H. Ku, director of USKI, and Jenny Town, vice director of USKI, a request the think tank dismissed. Ku has headed the organization since 2007.

National Security Council chief Chung Eui-yong advised North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to quit smoking, the Asahi Shimbun reported on Sunday.This episode happened when Kim had dinner with the South Korean envoy in Pyongyang on March 5, the daily quoted a source as saying."How about stopping smoking? It's bad to your health," Chung said.

More French Students Embrace Korean Courses

More and more French university students are applying to Korean studies departments. The number of applicants at exceeded 1,000 at both Université Paris-Diderot (Paris-VII University) and Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales, the two universities in Paris that have Korean departments. Last September, 1,056 students applied to Paris-VII University's Korean Studies Department, which only has a quota of about 100, while 1,014 applied at INLCO, which has a quota of 150. The competition is even fiercer for the new academic year that starts this September. College applications data show that 1,412 and 1,360 students applied to the two. "The recent popularity of Korean studies is surprising since fewer than 800 students applied before 2016," an admissions officer said.

Samsung Posts Earnings Surprise

Samsung Electronics posted better-than-expected sales of W60 trillion and an operating profit of W15.6 trillion for the first quarter of the year, according to preliminary performance results released Friday (US$1=W1,070). The operating profit tops the record it just set in the previous quarter. Its operating margin of 26 percent is also a record high.But Samsung is increasingly dependent on semiconductors for its operating profit while its display and home appliance businesses are declining.The semiconductor business is achieved an estimated operating profit of W11 trillion, just a quarter after it surpassed the W10 trillion mark for the first time. The proportion of semiconductors in total operating profit increased from 35 percent in 2014 to 65.6 percent in 2017 and is expected to reach 70 percent this year. Samsung ranks a distant first in the global DRAM and NAND flash markets with a share of over 40 percent in each.

Park hit with 24 year prison sentence

Former South Korean President Park Geun-hye could not shake a harsh sentence of 24 years because the district court ruled that she had received around 23.2 billion won (US$22.1 million) in bribes, representing the gravest charges she was facing. The court convicted Park of 16 of the 18 charges against her, which means that Park has now been punished for the majority of her influence-peddling, first by the Constitutional Court and now in criminal court as well. But the court did find that Park made no inappropriate request to Samsung Electronics Vice Chairman Lee Jae-yong, clearing her of the charge of “third-party bribery” with Samsung.On Apr. 6, the 22nd criminal division at the Seoul Central District Court under Hon. Kim Se-yun ruled that the 7.29 billion won (US$6.8 million) of equestrian support that Samsung gave to Chung Yoo-ra, daughter of Choi Soon-sil, was a bribe received by Park.

Park facing further trials following initial conviction on bribery charges

Former president Park Geun-hye’s first trial in connection with an influence-peddling scandal may have come to a close on Apr. 6, but initial court decisions are not finished for all charges against her. The first trial in another case concerning the payment of “special activity funds” by the National Intelligence Service (NIS) has only just begun. Depending on how fast it proceeds, the two cases could end up merged at the appeals court level, and with each being heard separately, the sentences in the event of convictions in both trials would be added together.On Jan. 22, Park was indicted on additional charges of bribery and misuse of state funds according to the Act on the Aggravated Punishment, etc. of Specific Crimes for allegedly conspiring with former NIS directors Nam Jae-joon, Lee Byung-kee, and Lee Byung-ho to receive 3.5 billion won (US$3.27 million) in NIS special activity funds.

Park could be sent to a workhouse if she is unable to pay millions in fines

A sentence of 18 billion won (US$16.8 million) in fines imposed by the court on Apr. 6 in addition to its 24-year prison sentence against former President Park Geun-hye is raising questions about how the amount was decided and whether Park will be able to pay it.In cases of bribes involving more than 100 million won (US$93,500), the Act on the Aggravated Punishment, etc. of Specific Crimes allows for sentences of life or 10 or more years in prison along with fines amounting to between two and five times the amount of the bribes.Park was convicted of accepting 7,294,270,000 won (US$6.82 million) from Samsung and 7 billion won (US$6.5 million) from Lotte and demanding 8.9 billion won (US$8.3 million) from SK; in this case, the largest amount – 8.9 billion – serves as the standard for the fine. This means the bribery punishments available to the court ranged from 17.8 billion won (US$16.6 million), or double the 8.9 billion won, to 66.75 billion won (US$62.4 million), which is five times the amount plus an additional 50% for multiple offenses. The amount chosen means the court selected essentially the smallest possible fine.

Big trading blunder roils Samsung Securities

Samsung Securities’ butter-fingered trading error Friday prompted financial authorities to conduct an industry-wide probe. A trader at Samsung’s securities affiliate was supposed to be making wire transfers of 1,000 won ($0.94) in dividends for each share of Samsung Securities owned by the companies’ employees on Friday. Instead the trader ordered 1,000 shares for each share owned by an employee - a total of 2.8 billion shares of Samsung Securities worth 112.6 trillion won. That sent the brokerage’s stock price plunging 3.64 percent by the close of the day. Aside from the sheer size of the blunder, the orders were so-called naked short-selling, which is illegal in Korea. In an approved short-sale or covered short-selling, traders must borrow a stock before they sell it short. But a naked short-seller is not required to borrow the securities in time to make delivery.

North, U.S. negotiating summit

Following reports of secret talks between the United States and North Korea to make preparations for a first bilateral summit, the Blue House said Sunday that it is “observing closely” the situation without confirming further details.Mike Pompeo, director of the Central Intelligence Agency and state secretary nominee, and his team have been working through intelligence back-channels with Pyongyang to prepare for a summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, CNN reported Saturday, citing several administration officials familiar with the discussions. It further reported that such secret talks are a “sign that planning for the highly anticipated meeting is progressing.”The U.S. and North Korean intelligence officials were said to have spoken several times in a third country, focusing on deciding a location for the summit.

Seoul to cut budget for Johns Hopkins’ USKI

The Blue House rejected accusations that the South Korean government has cut off funding to the U.S.-Korea Institute (USKI) at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) after the school failed to replace its director and assistant director.The Korean government was said to have notified the school last Wednesday that starting from June it would cut off its annual funding for USKI, which had been allocated since its founding in 2006. The reason reportedly was because SAIS did not agree to the Blue House’s request to replace the U.S.-Korea Institute’s conservative director, Jae H. Ku, and its assistant director, Jenny Town.

Cheong Wa Dae, "Not Like Libya or Iran, But a Korean-Style Solution"

The "fateful April" to determine the future of the Korean Peninsula is here. Every year in April, military tension on the Korean Peninsula heightened without fail, but this year, the situation is different. As the two Koreas agreed to hold an inter-Korean summit on April 27, military tensions have given way to diplomatic negotiations. The ROK-U.S. joint military exercises, which had been postponed due to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, began this day, but the two countries are conducting the exercises "quietly."

Spring Songs of Peace Touch the Heart of Pyongyang

On the afternoon of April 1, the South Korean art troupe and Taekwondo demonstration team in North Korea performed their first show in Pyongyang. The performance was a preshow to the inter-Korean summit scheduled for April 27 and was also in response to the performances in Gangneung and Seoul by the North Korean art troupe in February. Kim Jong-un, chairman of North Korea's State Affairs Commission was in the audience along with his wife, Ri Sol-ju. The South Korean art troupe composed mainly of popular singers opened the stage to the “Pyongyang Performance by the South Korean Art Troupe for Peace and Cooperation between North and South Korea” at the East Pyongyang Grand Theatre at 6:20 p.m. (Pyongyang time) this day. The theme of the show was "Spring Is Coming."

Ex-president Park Geun-hye receives 24-year jail sentence

As a key culprit behind a corruption scandal that revealed deep-rooted collusive ties between businessmen and politicians, South Korea's ousted ex-president Park Geun-hye received a 24-year jail sentence Friday after a court found her guilty of abusing her power to extort money from businessmen.Park was also slapped with a fine of 18 billion won (16.8 million US dollars) in the verdict delivered by the Seoul Central District Court in a session televised live for two hours."The defendant abused the presidential power entrusted by the people, resulting in great confusion in the order of state and leading to the unprecedented impeachment of the president," the verdict said.

Top economic official urges close look into 'ghost' stock trading

South Korea's top economic official called for a quick and close probe into the internal system of Samsung Securities as public concerns grew over fat-finger trading that saw non-existent "ghost" stocks paid to employees as dividends."Something that shouldn't have happened," Finance Minister Kim Dong-yeon told a radio talk show on Monday, adding financial regulators should take steps after launching an investigation into the brokerage arm of South Korea's largest Samsung group.Under a stock ownership plan, Samsung Securities had planned to pay cash dividends of 1,000 won (0.94 US dollars) per share to employees on Friday, but shares were paid due to a keyboard entry mistake. The brokerage said the error has been fixed.

Shipping association demands active reorganization to build size and strength

The liquidation of Hanjin Shipping was a big policy mistake made by the government of South Korea's ousted ex-president Park Geun-hye because it weakened the competitiveness of South Korean shippers and helped foreign rivals increase their clout, a top official at the Korea Shipowners Association (KSA) said."After a bitter remorse, we need to take a right direction and approach strategically," KSA Vice Chairman Kim Young-moo told Aju News.South Korean shippers have been in trouble due to falling freight rates stemming from an oversupply of ships and a protracted slump in the global economy. In February last year, Hanjin which used to be South Korea's top container carrier terminated its 40-year-long business.

The stock nosedived 12 percent during the day. It closed down 3.64 percent at 38,350 won ($35.85).

The error has been fixed, but it was only after some employees had already dumped the shares on the market.
