SEOUL, June 1 (Yonhap) -- President Moon Jae-in on Thursday appointed three deputy directors of the National Intelligence Service (NIS), completing the leadership lineup of the spy agency.

Moon appointed Seoul's Ambassador to Pakistan Suh Dong-gu as the first deputy director, while choosing Kim Joon-hwan, a former head of a regional NIS office, as the second deputy director. Kim Sang-gyun, a former chief of the NIS's North Korea strategy, was named the third deputy director.

The appointments came a day after Suh Hoon, Moon's pick for the NIS director, passed through the parliamentary confirmation process.
