Part of the reserve for the relocation of the office, at the earliest on the 5th, by the Cabinet meeting


Part of the reserve for the relocation of President-elect Yoon Seok-yeol’s office to Yongsan is expected to be decided at the cabinet meeting on the 5th as early as the 5th.

According to the Dong-A Ilbo report on the 1st, it is known that Lee Cheol-hee, senior secretary for political affairs, and Jang Je-won, the elected chief of staff, have recently agreed to move sequentially from some organizations within the Ministry of National Defense that are not participating in the ROK-US joint exercise or have little business connection. As President Moon Jae-in has emphasized ‘tight security’ during the regime change, the Blue House’s position is that it is difficult to relocate the Joint Chiefs of Staff from the 12th to the 28th during the ROK-US joint exercise.

As President-elect Yoon accepted this will of the Blue House, it is expected that the cost of remodeling the Hannam-dong government building, excluding the relocation of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will be decided first among the 49.6 billion won originally requested by President-elect Yoon. If a cabinet meeting presided over by President Moon is scheduled for the 5th and it takes more time for the Blue House and President-elect Yoon to make detailed adjustments, it is expected that an extraordinary meeting of the government will be held between the 6th and 8th to deal with the reserve funds. Earlier, President-elect Yoon stated that about 49.6 billion won was needed, including 11.8 billion won for relocation of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, 25.2 billion won for remodeling the Ministry of National Defense, 9.97 billion won for moving expenses of the Security Service, and 2.5 billion won for remodeling the Hannam-dong government building.

At the meeting of the National Integration Committee of the Presidential Takeover Committee on the same day, President-elect Yoon said, “It is not wartime where we fight with guns, but international crises and domestic political, economic and social crises are no different from wartime.” “It would be impossible without the unity and unity of the people,” he said. He repeatedly declared his will for national unity by defining external factors such as camp confrontation and the US-China conflict that were revealed during the presidential election process as ‘wartime’. He also said, “We need to prevent it so that the people can have a united mind by (knowing) who and what kind of power they are benefiting from causing conflicts and undermining integration in our society.” There was an interpretation that President-elect Yoon’s remarks were aimed at progressives, etc., but Kim Han-gil, chairman of the National Unification Committee of the transition committee, met with reporters and said, “The remarks were not aimed at a specific person.” President-elect Yoon, who emphasizes national unity every day, will also attend the 74th anniversary of the Jeju April 3 victims on the 3rd.
