SEOUL, March 26 (Yonhap) -- President Moon Jae-in wants South Korea's main opposition party to provide specifics for its massive emergency relief fund offer, Cheong Wa Dae said Thursday.

Hwang Kyo-ahn has publicly suggested that the government inject 40 trillion won (US$32.5 billion) won of rescue funding to deal with COVID-19, in addition to the government's current anti-virus program.

Moon said he's willing to "consider" it if Hwang presents a "more detailed" description of how it would be financed and work, Cheong Wa Dae spokesperson Kang Min-seok told reporters.
