1) A joint meeting for the Korea Liberty Party on Oct. 31

2) Kim Byung-joon, interim leader of the main opposition Liberty Korea Party, strongly criticized President Moon Jae-in’s policies toward North Korea.

3) “Our country’s pride is being seriously damaged.” - Kim Byung-joon, interim leader of the main opposition Liberty Korea Party

4) “Not only is the country’s pride at stake but the pride of our corporations is also being damaged.”

5) “[Businessmen] going to North Korea are hearing remarks such as ‘How can you eat Pyongyang-style noodles at a time like this?’”

6) “We have been put in a situation where we have to answer when foreign embassies, including that of the United States, call and ask corporations what they’re going to do with businesses connected to North Korea.”

7) “On Oct. 22, we referred to President Moon as an ‘agent’ for North Korea and we were criticized for that, but the foreign press went a step further to call Moon its ‘top spokesperson.’ It’s problematic that our president is now being called an ‘agent’ and a ‘top spokesperson’ for North Korea.”

8) “Our minister has been criticized for being three minutes late for a meeting with North Korea, but North Korean officials [sometimes] don’t even show up to these important meetings. Our government hasn’t been able to say anything about those ‘no shows.’”

9) “For how long will our country stay so servile? This is a frustrating situation.”
