Democratic Party leader Lee Jae-myung said yesterday (28th) that he would define President Yoon's visit as a diplomatic disaster and hold him accountable in his speech at the National Assembly negotiating group.
Today, Chairman Jin-seok Jeong, the vice chairman of the People's Power, delivers a speech by the representative of the negotiating group.
This is reporter Yoo Soo-hwan.
He criticized the visit of Democratic Party leader Lee Jae-myung and President Yoon Seok-yeol, who delivered the first speech by the representatives of negotiating groups after entering the National Assembly, as condolence diplomacy without condolences and the humiliating summit between Korea and Japan undermined the prestige of the nation.
In particular, he insisted that he could not even bring up the US inflation reduction bill and the Korea-US currency swap, which were the key tasks of the tour.
[Lee Jae-myung / Democratic Party Representative: It showed the level of diplomacy of this government nakedly.
There is no practice in diplomacy, a war without gunfire.
It's a harsh battle that can't be understood as a beginner.]
In the meantime, I set a point to hold myself accountable for such a 'diplomatic catastrophe'.
In his 40-minute speech, President Lee Jae-myung brought up the issue of constitutional amendment along with Lee Jae-myung's future vision such as basic income.
Immediately after the regular National Assembly, a special committee on constitutional amendment was formed in the National Assembly in December, and along with the 2024 general election, it was proposed that the constitutional amendment to the four-year presidential system be submitted to a referendum.
The People's Power was furious at the remarks of the diplomatic disaster and counterattacked that the proposal to dismiss the foreign minister from the Democratic Party was an act of self-harm.
[Ho-young Joo/People's Power Floor Leader: I think that it was wrong to say that it was a diplomatic disaster.
The fact that the proposal of no confidence in the Minister of Foreign Affairs is an act of self-harm that harms the national interest of the Republic of Korea…
He also expressed a negative stance on the proposal for constitutional amendment, saying that it would become a 'black hole for the people's livelihood'.
Following Jae-myung Lee yesterday, Chairman Jin-seok Jeong, chairman of the People's Power Hypertrophy, delivers a speech by the representative of the negotiating group today.
