You are the best reporter.


President Seok-Yeol Yoon will attend the high-level videoconference of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) this afternoon.

The Indo-Pacific Economic Framework is a multilateral forum to discuss the global supply chain, digital economy, carbon decarbonization, etc., launched by the United States, and Korea, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore are participating as founding members.

President Yoon emphasized the need for participation in the process of making rules related to economic and trade.

[President Seok-Yeol Yoon: This is the process of making a wide range of rules related to economic and trade in the Indo-Pacific region.

If we are left out, the national interest will also suffer a lot.]

President Yoon and President Biden visited the Aerospace Operations Headquarters at the US Air Force Base in Osan, Gyeonggi Province, on their last visit to Korea yesterday.

The Aerospace Operations Headquarters, located in an underground bunker, is the highest-level command center of the ROK and US Air Forces that directs and controls aerospace operations on the Korean Peninsula.

Among the South Korean-style three-axis systems that respond to North Korea's nuclear and missile threats, the executive headquarters that oversees the operations of the kill chain and South Korean missile defense systems are also included in it.

Entering the Operational Coordination Office, President Biden reiterated the importance of 'deterrence against North Korea', saying that the sacrificial alliance between the two countries has remained strong for 70 years.

President Yoon explained the meaning of the visit as a place that symbolizes the ROK-U.S. alliance.

This is the first time that the President of the United States has personally visited the Aerospace Operations Headquarters, and it is interpreted as an intention to show off a strong combined defense posture at the level of the leaders of the United States and South Korea.
