Uzbekistan one of few countries actively involved in the evacuation of citizens from areas of military conflict

The following article was contributed by the Embassy of Uzbekistan in Seoul for publication by The Korea Post media, publisher 3 English and 2 Korean-language news publications since 1985.—Ed.

Despite the negative aspects of the coronavirus pandemic, which affected almost all countries of the world, experts, journalists and bloggers in the world community often raise another question - How states can and should support their citizens who find themselves in zones of armed conflict, mostly in the Middle East and also in Afghanistan?

Alarming here is the UN assessment, where, according to their data, about 27,000 foreign children are being held in camps in northeastern Syria, 90 percent of whom have not yet reached the age of 12. Naturally, the task is not easy, but feasible, given that everyone has the right to rely on the help and support of the state. And their number, according to various estimates, is more than 50, whose citizens are and live in conditions of incessant hostilities

S. Korea's Job Growth Hits 80-Month High

South Korea has posted its biggest job growth in over six years in April.

Statistics Korea said on Wednesday that the number of jobs last month stood at 27-point-21 million, up by 652-thousand from a year earlier.

It is the largest on-year growth since August of 2014, when 670-thousand jobs were added.

The country had seen an on-year job contraction for 12 consecutive months since it lost 195-thousand jobs in March of last year before marking a turnaround in March with a growth of 314-thouand jobs.

Jeong Dong-myeong, a senior official of the statistics agency, attributed the second consecutive month of job growth to continuing economic recovery, impact of eased social distancing and the base effect from a severe job loss in April last year, among other factors.


 CNN: US Open to Providing Vaccines, Other Humanitarian Aid to N. Korea

The Joe Biden administration is reportedly open to providing North Korea with COVID-19 vaccines and other humanitarian assistance.

Quoting an unidentified senior U.S. government official familiar with internal discussions, CNN reported on Tuesday that Washington is open to considering the North’s requests for humanitarian assistance.

The official said there are no current plans to share vaccines with Pyongyang, adding the country refused to cooperate with COVAX and rejected Seoul’s offers to assist in handling the pandemic. 

However, the official, as well as another U.S. source who revealed the Biden administration’s stance, said vaccine sharing could grease the wheels for initial diplomatic engagement, as the North won’t be ready to engage with Washington until the pandemic’s threat has passed.

The senior official noted that such assistance would still need to be accompanied by effective monitoring to ensure it reached the intended beneficiaries.


Prosecution to Indict Seoul Prosecution Chief on Power Abuse

The Supreme Prosecutors’ Office has reportedly approved a plan to indict the Seoul prosecution chief on charges of abuse of power.

According to the legal community on Tuesday, acting Prosecutor General Cho Nam-kwan accepted an opinion from the Suwon District Prosecutors’ Office to indict Lee Sung-yoon, head of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office.

Lee is being investigated over suspicions that he exercised undue influence in 2019 to stop an investigation into the alleged illegal exit ban imposed on the scandal-ridden former Vice Justice Minister Kim Hak-ui.

If the case is taken to court, investigators from the Suwon District Prosecutors’ Office plan to merge it with cases involving two other officials who were already indicted of similar charges regarding the ex-vice justice minister.



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

N. Korea says U.S. offer to explain outcome of policy review 'well received'

North Korea is said to have acknowledged a recent U.S. offer to explain the outcome of its policy review on Pyongyang after earlier overtures from the administration of Joe Biden went unanswered.

In response to the U.S. offer last week, the North has reportedly said the proposal has been "well received," a different reaction from when the first dialogue offer was made. Last month, the U.S. said it had sought to engage with the North in mid-February, but the regime remained "unresponsive."

Still, whether it will lead to actual dialogue remains to be seen as the North earlier said it will ignore U.S. overtures until Washington gives up its hostility toward Pyongyang.

The U.S. announced the conclusion of its North Korea policy review on April 30.

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki has said the new U.S. policy will not seek an all-or-nothing "grand bargain" deal with the North, prompting many to believe the new Biden administration may be open to a gradual or step-by-step approach to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.


S. Korea reports largest job growth in almost 7 years in April

South Korea reported the largest job growth in almost seven years in April in the latest sign that the job market is recovering from a yearlong slump caused by the pandemic, data showed Wednesday.


The number of employed people reached 27.2 million last month, 652,000 more than a year earlier, according to the data compiled by Statistics Korea.

It marked the largest on-year increase since August 2014, when the number of employed people rose 670,000.

The April reading also marked the second straight month of the country reporting job additions. In March, the number of working people increased by 314,000 from a year earlier, the first job growth in 13 months.

The COVID-19 pandemic has dealt a severe blow to the job market, with the country reporting job losses for the 12th straight month in February.

But the base effect and increased economic activity following relaxed social distancing rules helped create more jobs amid an economic recovery, according to the statistics agency.


Head of U.S. think tank CFR receives S. Korean state medal

Richard Haass, head of a U.S. think tank, was awarded a South Korean medal Tuesday for his contributions to the strengthening of the U.S.-South Korea alliance.

The chief of the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) received the Gwanghwa Medal of the Order of Diplomatic Service Merit from South Korean Ambassador Lee Soo-hyuck in a ceremony in Washington.

The Gwanghwa Medal is the highest honor in the Order of Diplomatic Service Merit that is given to those "who have rendered meritorious service to the extension of national prestige overseas and to the promotion of friendship with other nations," the embassy said in a press release.

"Amb. Lee expressed his gratitude, saying (CFR) President Haass has greatly helped to enhance the understanding of the U.S. government and people about the importance of the South Korea-U.S. alliance and South Korea's contributions in dealing with the North Korean nuclear issue," it said.

US rebuts Chinese warning for Bangladesh to stay away from 'Quad'

A US State Department spokesman rebutted a Chinese diplomat's warning for countries to stay away from the US-led regional forum, Quad, on Tuesday, saying the Quad is an informal but essential mechanism to promote a free and open Indo-Pacific.

Ned Price made the remark after the Chinese ambassador in Bangladesh, Li Jing, said in a statement that the South Asian country should not join the Quad or its relations with China will "substantially be damaged."

"We have taken note of that statement from the PRC ambassador to Bangladesh. What we would say is that we respect Bangladesh's sovereignty and we respect Bangladesh's rights to make foreign policy decisions for itself," the department spokesman said in a press briefing.


US willing to share COVID vaccine with N. Korea if requested: report

The United States may consider sharing COVID-19 vaccines with North Korea if requested by the impoverished nation, if the vaccines will reach the intended beneficiaries, a US news outlet reported Tuesday.

CNN noted the sharing of vaccines may help resume diplomatic dialogue with the North but that no request for assistance has been made.

"While we are open to considering DPRK requests for humanitarian assistance, these would need to be accompanied by effective monitoring to ensure that it reached the intended beneficiaries," it reported, quoting an unidentified senior administration official.

DPRK stands for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the North's official name.


S. Korea, New Zealand share concerns over Japan's Fukushima water

Foreign Minister Chung Eui-yong and his New Zealand counterpart Nanaia Mahuta held telephone talks on Tuesday and shared concerns about Japan's planned release of contaminated water from the Fukushima nuclear plant, the ministry said.

Last month, Tokyo approved a plan to dump more than 1 million tons of radioactive water from the wrecked nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean, sparking strong criticism from its local fishing industry and neighboring countries.

During the talks, Chung expressed concerns about the plan, and stressed the importance of the verification by international organizations, such as the International Atomic Energy Agency, according to the ministry.

Mahuta also mentioned worries about Japan's plan among island nations in the Pacific, vowing to continue consultations with the IAEA, it added..



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

North Korea reports no coronavirus cases: WHO

North Korea has conducted coronavirus tests on around 26,000 people so far but found no infections, the World Health Organization (WHO) said Tuesday.

According to the WHO's weekly report on COVID-19, 751 North Koreans underwent virus tests from April 23-29, bringing the total number of tested citizens to 25,986 so far, but none were found to have been infected.

Of the 751 newly tested citizens, 139 people showed flu-like symptoms but all of them turned out to be those of acute respiratory illnesses, the report said.

North Korea has claimed to be coronavirus-free but has taken relatively swift and tough measures against the pandemic, such as imposing strict border controls since early last year.

The North is expected to receive around 2 million doses of coronavirus vaccines through a global vaccine distribution program, but they have not been delivered to the country yet.


Moon's comments trigger debate over parliamentary confirmation hearing system

Comments made by President Moon Jae-in have triggered debate over the effectiveness of the National Assembly confirmation hearing system for ministers and other ranking government officials.

Moon said during a special address at Cheong Wa Dae, Monday, to mark the fourth anniversary of his inauguration, that the current system, usually led by the opposition, is being misused to humiliate nominees rather than reviewing whether the candidates are good fits for the jobs.

Late last month, the President named his nominees for prime minister and five Cabinet members. But Moon's pick for Land Minister, Noh Hyeong-ouk, as well as Science Minister nominee Lim Hye-sook and Oceans Minister nominee Park Jun-young, have been embroiled in controversies over their respective ethical lapses.

During the speech, Moon said that the three nominees are good fits for the jobs, considering their expertise and career backgrounds.



Main opposition party to hold convention next month to pick new chairman

The main opposition People Power Party (PPP) said Tuesday it will hold a convention next month to elect the new party leadership.

The party's central election committee decided to host the party convention on June 11 to pick the new chairman and the new members of the supreme council, during its inaugural meeting held earlier in the day.

Currently, about 12 party members have declared or are reportedly considering running for the party chairmanship.

As the competition for the chairman seat became heated, the party committee deferred its decision on setting the ground rules for a primary for the election and said it will make the decision after the deadline for candidacy registration on May 22.

So far, five heavyweight incumbent legislators declared their bids for the chairman post left vacant by the departure of interim party leader Kim Chong-in last month.

Moon says he will pave way to peace on Korean Peninsula ahead of US visit

In a special address Monday to mark his fourth year in office and a Q&A session with reporters afterward, South Korean President Moon Jae-in looked back on the ups and downs experienced by South and North Korea and the US in the Korean Peninsula peace process since he took office.

In his remarks, Moon said that he "look[s] forward to North Korea responding positively."

Noting that the administration of US President Joe Biden had completed its review of North Korea policy, Moon said that "the time for long deliberations is [. . .] coming to an end."

"It is time to take action," he added. "I will consider the remaining one year of my term to be the last opportunity to move from an incomplete peace toward one that is irreversible."


Moon mentions “crisis” 33 times, “overcome” 23 times in his speech marking 4 years in office

A large portion of South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s address Monday to mark four years in office, and his subsequent press conference, was devoted to emphasizing his achievements during his term so far and noting that he had successfully navigated numerous crises since taking office.

Indeed, the word for “crisis” came up 33 times in the address and press conference that day, while the words for “overcome” and “recover” appeared 23 times.

His emphasis appeared to signal his determination to regain momentum in his governance, touting his past “victories over crisis” in response to critics recently accusing him of incompetence and a lack of capabilities ahead of his fourth anniversary in office.


Can the door to peace on Korean Peninsula be reopened?

On July 6, 2017, South Korean President Moon Jae-in proclaimed that the only thing that Koreans want is peace. In a speech in Berlin, he unveiled the new South Korean administration’s plan for peace on the Korean Peninsula, but his appeal went unanswered.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and then-US President Donald Trump were playing a “chicken game” that was dragging the Korean Peninsula closer to war. Just two days before Moon made his appeal for peace, Kim test-fired the Hwasong-14, an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of striking the US mainland. That took place on July 4, the US’s Independence Day.

“We have reached the final point in our long confrontation with the American imperialists,” Kim said at the time.

On Aug. 5, the UN adopted Resolution 2371, which fully banned North Korea from trading coal, its primary export product.

N.Korea Slams Biden's New Approach to Diplomacy

North Korea has lashed out at President Joe Biden, warning the U.S. will face a "very grave situation," after the White House announced the broad outlines of its plan for diplomacy with Pyongyang.

The statement, issued Sunday by a senior North Korean diplomat, was the country's first official reaction to the Biden administration's just-completed North Korea policy review, which expresses an openness to talks with the nuclear-armed country.

Kwon Jong-gun, director general of the Department of U.S. Affairs of the North’s Foreign Ministry, dismissed the U.S. approach as a "spurious signboard for covering up its hostile acts" against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the country's official name.


N.Korean Regime Loses Grip on Younger Generation

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un recently criticized young people who have grown up exposed to South Korean pop culture by saying they needed to be converted.

Kim was pointing to the threat to his regime's Stalinist ideology posed by the young generation, who have become curious about the outside world and tend to be more independent-minded than the older generation.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and his wife Ri Sol-ju clap at a peformance to mark the birthday of nation founder Kim Il-sung on April 15, in this grab from [North] Korean Central Television.

In a closing speech at a Workers Party meeting earlier this month Kim said, "Turning all party cells into healthy and viable ones which are closely knitted in bonds of human feelings... Those that are not knitted in bonds of human feelings cannot become loyal cells."

Earlier, he tightened surveillance of young people. In December, he mandated the death sentence for people caught distributing South Korean and Western movies, songs and TV dramas and a maximum 15-year prison term on people who are nabbed watching them. This year, he ordered party cadres to re-educate wayward members.


Korean Businesses in India Hit by COVID Crisis

Korean businesses in India have been hit hard by the huge surge in coronavirus infections there.

With a population of 1.4 billion people, India ranks among the world's top three markets along with the U.S. and China, but 403,738 new infections were reported there on Saturday alone, forcing around 700 Korean companies there to send non-essential staff back to Korea and have essential employees work from home.

Hyundai, which has a factory in Chennai, is halting production from Monday to Saturday for facility repairs that were traditionally done in the summer holidays. "Our production has not been directly affected yet, but more and more areas are being locked down and only around 20 percent of our dealers are working," a staffer said.

Pres. Moon Jae-in criticizes sending of anti-North Korea leaflets

South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Monday publicly criticized the sending of anti-North Korean leaflets to North Korea, saying such activities “throw cold water on inter-Korean relations.” This is the first time that President Moon mentioned sending of anti-North Korean leaflets by civic groups in South Korea. It appears President Moon made the remarks in response to the recently released statement by Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which called anti-North Korea leaflets an “intolerable provocation” and warned of “corresponding action.” However, with the Biden administration promoting a campaign for the free flow of information to North Korea, experts point out Seoul and Washington are not in agreement over the anti-Pyongyang leaflet issue. President Moon will hold his first summit talks with U.S. President Joe Biden on June 21..


US official: N. Korea may use nuclear and biochemical weapons

An official of the U.S. Department of Defense reported that North Korea may use weapons of mass destruction (WMD), such as nuclear or biochemical weapons, in case of emergencies on the Korean Peninsula, in which case the preparation of the ROK-U.S. Combined Forces will be required.

“North Korea's continued pursuit of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons jeopardizes international stability and weakens the global nonproliferation regime,” Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Jennifer Walsh stressed in a statement delivered prior to the Tuesday (local time) hearing of the subcommittee on military intelligence and special operations under the House Committee on Armed Services. She claims that it is in violation of the U.N. Security Council’s resolution and a threat to the U.S. forces, as well as other allies and partners.


Pyongyang’s Seoul-bashing over publication of Kim Il Sung memoir

North Korea’s propaganda outlet inveighed against the latest controversy over the publication of “With the Century,” a memoir of North Korea’s founder Kim Il Sung, in South Korea, labeling it “Hysterical craze” and “Fuss from impure forces.”

“Abnormal developments are unfolding in the South, which are far from common-sensical,” said Urimizokkiri, the North Korean propaganda website, on Monday about the controversies around the publication of the 8-volume memoirs of Kim Il Sung in South Korea. “The legal circles and the conservative media in South Korea are making a fuss and showing a hysterical craze over the publication of the memoirs, citing “breach” of national security law and “act of benefiting enemies”, the website added.

Biden Narrowly Ahead in U.S. Election: His Tasks and Policies on the Korean Peninsula

Democratic candidate Joe Biden is currently ahead in the U.S. presidential election. According to the U.S. press on the morning of November 5 (local time), Biden has secured 264 of the electoral votes and is expected to have no problem obtaining the 270 votes necessary to win the election. Thus the unilateral state administration by President Donald Trump, which had given the world a hard time the last four years, is likely to make an exit. During the campaign, Biden put a distance between himself and Trump’s “America first,” anti-globalization, protective trade, and anti-immigration policies and pledged to restore a liberal international order. We expect Biden to return the U.S. to normalcy according to the wishes of the international community.

The first task Biden will have to tackle is switching Trump’s foreign policy. The key issue would be putting an end to the America-first policy.


Japan Should Respond to Dialogue Instead of Going Against the Flow without Reflecting on Its Past

On August 15, the 75th anniversary of Japan’s defeat in the Pacific War, four members of the Japanese Shinzo Abe cabinet paid their respects at the Yasukuni Shrine, where class-A war criminals are enshrined. Afterwards, Seiichi Eto, minister of state for Okinawa and Northern Territories affairs said, “This is not an issue on which we should listen to South Korea or China,” and Sanae Takaichi, minister of internal affairs and communications said, “How one is to serve and comfort the spirits of those who sacrificed their lives for their country should be determined by the people of each country.” That cabinet members visited the Yasukuni Shrine for the first time in four years is shocking, but their rash comments are simply outrageous. There was no sign of any reflection on the past war of aggression and the pride that they displayed as they suggested attempts to intervene in the domestic affairs of the country left us doubting whether Japan had any interest in developing a future-oriented relationship with neighboring countries.


Employment Extension: The Right Direction, But Many Obstacles Ahead

President Moon Jae-in said, “It is time we begin reviewing the extension of employment.” On Tuesday, the president received a report from the Ministry of Employment and Labor and instructed the ministry to extend the economic activities of senior citizens in response to the rapidly decreasing productive population (ages 15-64). This drew attention to the Japanese “continuing-employment policy,” which the government announced it would review beginning 2022 last September. This policy obligates companies to extend the employment of its workers to a certain age even after the legal retirement age of sixty, giving companies the option to choose from re-hiring the worker, extending the retirement age, or abolishing the retirement age altogether. The government does not legally stipulate the extension of the retirement age or impose penalties, but encourages companies to delay retirement by adjusting government support. The government also hopes this will encourage companies to input more of the elderly workforce in industrial worksites. The president personally raised the issue of extending employment, a sensitive issue to all generations, as a national problem.

EU firms optimistic about Vit Nam’s business climate in 2021

The latest Business Climate Index (BCI) unveiled by the European Chamber of Commerce (EuroCham) in Vit Nam on Wednesday indicated that EU companies in Vit Nam ended 2020 with an overall optimistic view about the country`s business climate.

The BCI picked up six points in the fourth quarter of 2020 to reach 63.6 percentage points for the whole year, the highest since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The index stood at a record low of 27 percentage points in the first quarter of last year, following the first wave of COVID-19 in Vit Nam.

The BCI steadily grew throughout the year as the result of Vit Nam’s successful containment of the novel coronavirus and the enforcement of the EU-Vit Nam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA) which took effect in August.


Indonesia Extends 14-Day Entry Ban on Foreign Arrivals

Jakarta. Indonesia will extend the entry ban on foreign visitors for another 14 days.

The announcement comes a few days ahead of its deadline.

"President Joko `Jokowi` Widodo has agreed to extend the entry ban on foreigners. It is currently in effect from January 1 to January 14. We will extend it by 14 days," Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Airlangga Hartarto said in a virtual press conference on Monday.

The government previously decided to bar foreigners from entering the country on concern over the new coronavirus strain.

"There have been reports about a new strain of Covid-19 that according to scientific studies is capable of spreading more rapidly," Foreign Affairs Minister Retno Marsudi said at a virtual conference back on Dec. 28, 2020.
