Cheong Wa Dae pleads for parliamentary approval of FM nominee

All Headlines 11:43 June 09, 2017

SEOUL, June 9 (Yonhap) -- President Moon Jae-in on Friday pleaded with the opposition-led parliament for its approval of his nominee for the new foreign minister, claiming the nominee and her credentials have long been approved and praised by the international community.

The president's appeal for Kang Kyung-hwa came two days after the former U.N. official underwent her parliamentary confirmation hearing.

"However, the discussions at the National Assembly over its publication of a report on the outcome of the confirmation hearing seem to show little progress," Park Soo-hyun, a spokesman for the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae, told a press briefing.

Park said the latest appeal for Kang came at the request from the president himself.
