Leaders to explore ways to improve inter-Korean ties at summit

South and North Korea are expected to discuss ways to advance their relations at this week's summit, but tough international sanctions will likely limit their efforts toward economic cooperation, experts said Thursday.

An improvement of inter-Korean relations is one of three key agenda items for the summit Friday; North Korea's denuclearization and the establishment of permanent peace on the Korean Peninsula are the other two.

The summit between President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un comes after more than a year of heightened tensions sparked by the North's nuclear and missile provocations. The North is under multi-layered international sanctions.

"The leaders are likely to deal with the issue of reunions of war-separated families, humanitarian affairs and social and cultural exchanges," said Kim Yong-hyun, a professor at Dongguk University.

"But it would be difficult to expect any big agreements on economic areas as the current sanctions regime limits wiggle room," he added.

Global leaders express hope for success of inter-Korean summit

A number of global leaders, including the pope, have expressed their hope for the success of the upcoming summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, Moon's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said Wednesday.The global leaders include German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who called the upcoming summit a "glimmer of hope.""Now I call this a glimmer of hope. It must continue to work. But of course it would be wonderful if we could reduce tension here. Because it was a big concern for all of us -- this tension due to the nuclearization of North Korea," the German leader said in a press conference held March 9.On March 5, Seoul and Pyongyang agreed to hold the Moon-Kim summit when Moon's top security adviser Chung Eui-yong traveled to Pyongyang for an unprecedented meeting with the North Korean leader.

Moon to clinch ‘Denuclearization of North Korea’ at Moon-Kim talks Friday

President Moon Jae-in is expected to seek to clinch North Korea’s declaration of its denuclearization at his meeting with Chairman Kim Jong-un in Panmunjom on April 27, 2018. The working-level officials of the two sides are known to be finalizing the document of agreement between the two leaders—leaving the question to the two leaders to decide directly at their meeting.Whether North Korea will carry out its denuclearization is said to have been left for the two leaders to decide at their meeting at Panmunjonm on April 27. This was reported by Korean-langauge daily, Chosun Ilbo, this morning.

South Korea held a rehearsal on its own on Tuesday and conducted a joint rehearsal with North Korean officials on Wednesday.

S. Korea's Economy Grows 1.1% in Q1

South Korea's economy expanded over one percent in the first quarter thanks to increased investment and exports.According to preliminary data from the Bank of Korea(BOK) on Thursday, the country's gross domestic product(GDP) reached 395-point-nine trillion won in the January-March period, up one-point-one percent from the previous quarter.The first quarter growth is a turnaround from a point-two percent drop in the previous quarter. From a year earlier, the economy expanded two-point-eight percent.If the pace continues, the economy is likely to expand three percent this year as the central bank projected.

Yonhap (http://english.yonhapnews.co.kr)

KIF expected to raise economic growth projection for this year

Domestic consumption is likely to pick up in the latter half of this year while exports remain steady, a projection that will allow the Korea Institute of Finance (KIF) to raise its economic growth outlook for 2018, the institute's new chief said Thursday.KIF in October last year forecasted 2.8 percent economic growth for South Korea in 2018, close to what private research organizations presented. The Bank of Korea has already upgraded its projection from 2.9 percent to 3 percent. The finance ministry, the International Monetary Fund and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development also have predicted 3 percent."Compared to last year, temporary employment is increasing. Given various factors such as a higher minimum wage, consumption is likely to expand in the second half," KIF President Sohn Sang-ho said in an interview with Yonhap. "The currencies of exports-competitive countries are showing strength, so South Korea's share in the exports market isn't expected to shrink (from the strong won)," he said.

Daewoo E&C Q1 net falls 42 pct due to base effect

Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co. said Thursday its first-quarter net profit plunged 42 percent from a year earlier due to a base effect. Net profit for the January-March period stood at 111.4 billion won (US$103 million) from 191.9 billion won a year earlier, the company said in a statement. "In the first quarter of 2017, the company posted very robust earnings results in overseas and domestic construction projects. But in this past first quarter, the earnings results fell short of meeting year-ago figures," a company spokeswoman said.In the first quarter of 2017, Daewoo E&C shifted to a net profit of 191.9 billion won from a net loss of 7.5 billion won a year ago, with operating profits soaring 221.1 billion won from 81.6 billion won.

Samsung Electronics' Q1 net profit soars on chips

Samsung Electronics Co. said Thursday its first-quarter net profit advanced 52.11 percent from a year earlier, following improved returns from its crucial chip operations as well as smartphone sales.Net profit reached 11.6 trillion won (US$10.7 billion) for the January-March period, compared with 7.6 trillion won posted a year earlier, the South Korean tech giant said through its earnings guidance report.Operating profit reached a record-high of 15.6 trillion won, up 58.03 percent from the first three months of last year, the company said. It also moved up 3.27 percent from the previous record of 15.1 trillion won posted a quarter earlier.Sales jumped 19.82 percent to 60.5 trillion won, compared with 50.5 trillion won in the same three-month period in 2017.First-quarter operating profit came in line with the estimate of 15.6 trillion won forecast through a preliminary guidance report released earlier this month.

On the table at Peace House: Nukes, peace, better relations

With the historic inter-Korean summit just around the corner, speculation is rampant over what the two leaders will discuss amid hopes that their meeting will pave the way for peace on the Korean Peninsula. According to Cheong Wa Dae, the main agenda will be narrowed down to: denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, establishment of the peace regime and improvement of inter-Korean relations. But exactly what will be discussed, and more importantly, what will be announced at the end of the day is hard to predict. Unlike most summits where the agenda is coordinated at working-level discussions, the upcoming inter-Korean summit largely relies on the two leaders’ determination for a political breakthrough.

Samsung Electronics' net profit up 52.11% in Q1

Samsung Electronics Co. said Thursday its first-quarter net profit advanced 52.11 percent from a year earlier.Net profit reached 11.6 trillion won ($10.7 billion) for the January-March period, compared with 7.6 trillion won posted a year earlier, the South Korean tech giant said through its earnings guidance report. Operating profit came to 15.6 trillion won, up 58.03 percent from a year earlier, the company said. Sales moved up 19.82 percent to 60.5 trillion won, compared with 50.5 trillion won in the same three months of 2017.

Korea’s worsening unemployment goes against global trend

Korea’s unemployment problem has continued to worsen in recent years, with all other major economies seeing their job markets tightening in keeping with robust growth.According to data from Statistics Korea and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the country’s unemployment rate rose from 3.5 percent in 2014 to 3.7 percent in 2017, while the average jobless rate of 34 OECD members dropped from 7.4 percent to 5.8 percent over the same period. What should be noted is that Korea’s economy has grown at a faster pace than most other developed economies in the past few years, though the growth rates were lower than those recorded in previous years.This suggests that economic expansion has less of an influence on employment in Korea, which depends heavily on big high-tech manufacturing exporters for growth and remains reluctant to carry out regulatory and labor reforms.

The Korea Times (http://www.koreatimes.co.kr)

Nation hoping for successful summit

The government is seeking to promote the flying of the "unification flag," in the hopes of creating the mood for a successful inter-Korean summit. President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will hold the summit, Friday, at the border town of Panmunjeom -- 11 years after a second summit took place in Pyongyang in October 2007. The historic first meeting between the two Koreas was held in June 2000. The unification flag features a light blue silhouette of the Korean Peninsula on a white background and has been used in sports events when the two Koreas have fielded a joint team since 1991. Under the flag, the South and North Korean athletes marched together at the opening and closing ceremonies of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics in February

North Korea's Kim sees off wounded Chinese tourists

North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un personally saw off a train repatriating the bodies of dozens of Chinese tourists who were killed in a bus accident as he issued a fresh apology to Beijing over the tragedy, state media reported Thursday.Thirty-two Chinese tourists and four North Koreans perished when a bus they were travelling in plunged off a bridge south of Pyongyang Sunday night, according to Chinese officials. Two other Chinese nationals were injured.Beijing is the isolated regime's sole major ally, providing an important economic and political buffer against international opprobrium.The crash has sparked a series of rare mea culpas on North Korea's tightly controlled propaganda network in which Kim has taken centre stage both in responding to the crash and apologising to China.

'Get Korea two years' peace and we would call summits success'

South Korean President Moon Jae-in's summit with Kim Jong Un is an easy sell, welcome relief for South Koreans who have long lived under the North Korean threat, experts told UPI ahead of Friday's historic meeting.Even as skeptics who question Kim's ultimate intentions are dominating the conversation in the United States, South Korean analysts with expertise in Korea's politics and mass culture say the summit may feel long overdue for South Koreans, who not too long ago were being subjected to evacuation drills in central Seoul.Park Jae-hang, a senior advertising executive with Havas Korea in Seoul, and previously with Cheil Communications, said the summit with Kim and the suspension of North Korea missile disturbances do not need an explanation or a glossy promotion -- although Seoul turned heads last week with a new slogan, "Peace, A New Start," for the upcoming summit.

2 Koreas to Discuss Disarming Soldiers in DMZ
North and South Korea will discuss a phased removal of guard posts in the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas as well as disarming the remaining soldiers stationed in the border truce village. The idea is part of efforts by South Korea to turn the DMZ from a symbol of division into a symbol of peace, according to government sources. Under the armistice that halted the Korean War in 1953, North and South Korean soldiers in the DMZ are allowed to carry handguns and non-automatic rifles.President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who meet Friday, will also discuss creating a liaison office in the border truce village of Panmunjom staffed by workers from both sides, with regular meetings held there to discuss cross-border exchanges and military matters.

Minute Details of Summit Protocol Revealed
President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will come face to face at a round table at the Peace House in the border truce village of Panmunjom during their summit on Friday. The table has a diameter of 2,018 mm to symbolize the year the historic summit takes place, and the meeting room resembles the living room of a traditional Korean house. The protocol has been planned down to the smallest detail. It remains to be seen if as much thought has gone into preparing the agenda. Cheong Wa Dae spokeswoman Ko Min-jung told reporters, "We tried to ensure that the physical barrier and psychological distance created by 70 years of division will be reduced so that the two leaders could sit face to face and engage in frank dialogue."

N.Koreans Told Their Country Is Nuclear-Armed State
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has ordered officials to spread internal propaganda that the North is now a nuclear-armed state. Newsis on Tuesday cited a source as saying Kim issued the order just after announcing a halt to nuclear and missile tests at a Workers Party Central Committee meeting last week. The order stated, "Educate and inform them that we were able to become a legitimate nuclear-armed state thanks to [leader Kim Jong-un's] successful two-track pursuit of nuclear and economic development over the last five years," according to the source. There is no reference to a suspension of nuclear and missile tests. "North Koreans are also being told of the upcoming summit with the U.S. and believe that the U.S. has recognized their country as a nuclear-armed state," the source added.

President Moon views summit as establishing momentum for ongoing dialogue

“There are currently many constraints on the inter-Korean summit. South and North cannot make any separate progress irrespective of the North Korea-US summit, nor are they able to make agreements beyond international sanctions. . . . It does seem clear, however, that we at least need to establish the momentum for dialogue to continue.”These remarks were made by President Moon Jae-in during an invitational luncheon for media company presidents at the Blue House on Apr. 19. At the time, the remarks were seen as a formality intended to quiet excessive media hopes for the upcoming Apr. 27 inter-Korean summit. They weren’t.Instead, the remarks encapsulated Moon’s heartfelt opinions and strategy regarding historic improvements in inter-Korean relations - the third of three main agenda items given by the Blue for the summit, alongside denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and establishment of permanent peace. The “we at least need to establish the momentum for dialogue to continue” part was the key element.

President Moon set to propose permanent liaison office with North Korea

During the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that is scheduled for Apr. 27, South Korean President Moon Jae-in reportedly intends to propose setting up and running a permanent deliberation and liaison office at Panmunjeom that would serve as an inter-Korean mission. Moon also reportedly means to propose establishing and operating inter-Korean joint committees to serve as permanent bodies for consultation in areas including politics, the military and the economy.

Hotline between South and North Korean leaders yet to be used

Even though a direct hotline between the offices of South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been successfully connected, the two leaders have delayed having an actual phone call. Since preparations for the inter-Korean summit that will be held at Panmunjeom on Apr. 27 are going smoothly, some are saying that a phone call between the leaders and high-level talks to discuss the details of the agenda may not take place.“The two leaders might speak on the phone before the meeting, or they might do so afterward. Since they’re going to have a face-to-face conversation for several hours [three days from now], one might wonder if they really need to talk on the phone. Their phone call wouldn’t be about anything of substance, so you have to ask whether that kind of symbolic act is really necessary,” a senior official at the Blue House told reporters on Apr. 24.

Moon-Trump summit planned for May

A summit between President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump will be held between the inter-Korean summit tomorrow and a yet-to-be-scheduled North-U.S. summit in late May or June, according to a senior Blue House official Wednesday. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the official said the Moon-Trump meeting was expected to be held sometime in mid-May, without elaborating on a date or venue. The official’s remark confirmed widespread speculation that the leaders of South Korea and the United States will meet after the inter-Korean meeting to coordinate an agenda for Trump’s meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Washington picks Adm. Harry Harris as Seoul ambassador

Adm. Harry Harris, the outgoing chief of the U.S. Pacific Command, is now the White House’s choice to become ambassador to Seoul, a long-vacant position, according to various officials Tuesday. U.S. President Donald Trump named Harris, 61, as his ambassador to Australia on Feb. 9, and the Australian government approved the choice. But according to the Washington Post Tuesday, a senior White House official confirmed that Harris was going to be nominated as top envoy to Seoul, and the Trump administration asked the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to postpone his confirmation hearing for the Canberra post, which had been scheduled for Tuesday.

Naver limits ‘likes’ and comments on news stories

Naver, Korea’s top internet portal, overhauled the way users can comment on news after it found itself at the center of a public opinion manipulation scandal.The overhaul includes limits on the number of comments that can be submitted by a single account on a particular article per day. The changes took effect immediately.But the company refused to shut down its unique news section platform that encourages users to read articles supplied by different news outlets and leave comments. There have been growing demands from conservative political factions and the general public that Naver should only offer links to news articles, which would take users off the Naver website and to the site of the media organization responsible for the story.

President Moon to Greet Chairman Kim at the Military Demarcation Line (MDL)
On April 24, Cheong Wa Dae announced that President Moon Jae-in would greet Kim Jong-un, chairman of North Korea's State Affairs Commission in front of the Military Demarcation Line (MDL) at Panmunjom at around 10 a.m. April 27. President Moon will move together with Chairman Kim to the official reception hall. The chairman is expected to inspect the honor guard. On this day, three days before the inter-Korean summit, President Moon concentrated on preparations for the summit, intensively debating the summit agenda and methods.

Naver at the Center of the Distortion of Public Opinion: Time to Lasso the Media Dinosaur
Naver is under fire after the so-called "D-ruking online comments scheme" was revealed. Two-way communication, which was the purpose of letting people post online comments to news articles in 2004, was nowhere to be found, and people fiercely attacked the web portal claiming that Naver should be responsible for the gravity of attempts to manipulate and distort public opinion. The manipulation of public opinion using online comments on Naver has been an age-old problem. When problems surfaced, Naver responded by changing the sorting method of the comments, but such actions were merely makeshift. Naver arranged the comments according to the number of likes they received, the ratio of likes, the time the comment was postedewest or oldest firstnd at present according to a statistical analysis of those posting the commentsender or age grouput the comments can still be manipulated even in the current system. IDs used to manipulate the comments are traded at cheap prices, and it isn't difficult for brokers who facilitate the manipulation of online comments to post thousands of comments alone. It is virtually a piece of cake for a handful of people to post comments and make it look like they are the opinion of the masses.

"New Economic Map of the Korean Peninsula" President Moon's Pledge in the Spotlight
With the inter-Korean summit on April 27 approaching, the Moon Jae-in government's policy on the North Korean economy, "the new economic map of the Korean Peninsula" is drawing attention.According to the white paper published by the National Planning and Advisory Committee, which worked as the transition committee for the Moon Jae-in government, last year, the three major economic belts forming an H on the Korean Peninsula are at the center of the new economic map. In the east, North and South Korea are to jointly develop Mount Kumgang, Wonsan, Tanchon, Chongjin and Rason and create the East Sea Energy & Resources Belt, linking South Korea's east coast with Russia. To the west, the West Coast Industrial, Logistics & Transportation Belt links the Seoul metropolitan area with the Kaesong Industrial Complex, Pyongyang, Nampo and Sinuiju. Then there is the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) Environment & Tourism Belt, which connects east and west.

S. Korea’s IBK moves step closer to setting up entity in Indonesia

South Korea’s state-run Industrial Bank of Korea (IBK) said on Wednesday that it has agreed to buy 71.68 percent shares in Indonesia’s PT Bank Mitraniaga Tbk, moving a step closer to setting up a local entity in the Southeast Asian country.The latest agreement, which requires approval from Indonesian financial authority, comes five months after IBK announced a similar deal to buy a majority 82.59 percent stake in another Indonesian lender PT Bank Agris Tbk in November. IBK’s decision to take over the two lenders in Indonesia is aimed at establishing a local entity. Currently the Indonesian financial regulation requires a foreign bank to acquire at least two local banks to open own local entity and exercise management rights with more than 40 percent shares at the new business.
