[서울=뉴시스] Reporter Kim Seong-jin = At ​​the plenary meeting of the National Assembly’s Defense Committee held on the afternoon of the 17th, fierce criticism from the opposition parties continued in connection with the North Korean male Vietnam incident on the coast of Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do. The ruling and opposition parties pointed out the military’s “failure to warn” with one voice.

In addition, Rep. Dong-min Dong-min, a secretary of the Democratic Party, said, “I think it should be a premise that everything cannot be accomplished perfectly because it is a human thing.” “There is no excuse for not catching the signs several times even though the surveillance equipment was working properly. There is no boundary failure” he pointed out.

Rep. Ki said, “I am worried that the morale of the soldiers who devoted themselves will be lowered by this incident, and it is very unfortunate that the national disappointment will inevitably increase,” he said. “If anxiety increases and distrust in the military is caused, it will inevitably lead to lower morale. “I think it’s a serious situation.”

Democratic Party Rep. Seol-hoon also said, “It’s a good thing to end the situation within the civilian control line (civilian control line), but why is it (the issue of failure of warfare operation)? I can’t ask.”

Rep. Seol said, “There is a need to take appropriate measures for those who make the relevant people accountable and who have properly vigilantly worked,” he said. “I need to do a full inspection once again. Also, because of these results (the Ministry of National Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff) there will be nothing to say. “I said.

There were also voices that pointed out the wide range of the 22nd Division of Goseong County, which is nearly 100km from the land and the coast, and to take measures to compensate.

Democratic Party Rep. Kim Jin-pyo said, “We need to take fundamental measures while deeply examining the issue of how to deal with the boundaries of a wide area. If we see that incidents are occurring frequently, the current alert plan is not really enough for the soldiers to properly monitor There is a problem that does not fit into reality,” he pointed out.

Rep. Kim said, “I have to push forward with the Defense Reform 2.0 and reduce the number of troops. What will I do? In the end, should the equipment be strengthened and the reporting system should be automated by surveillance equipment?” It doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take this system as it is.”

Rep. Ahn Gyu-baek of the same party also said, “(The 22nd Division of Goseong) has a four-fold radius of responsibility compared to other divisions, so it is huge. If it is four times wider, you have to meet all the conditions, such as equipment and personnel, and pursue responsibility and take reprimands. Personnel ·Equipment conditions are the same, but can you make a hole or not?”

However, Assemblyman Ahn also pointed out the problem of discipline of the field commander. He said, “The soldiers also look at the commander’s eyes and wake up,” he said. “Why did you miss it even though it was detected several times? Even the adults in their twenties will forget about it, even though the minds are weak, and I have to repeat it. Learning is repeated. Commanders are also repetitive. You have to repeat it.”

Rep. Shin Won-sik, the power of the people, lamented, “The military is being ridiculed in the order of sleep defection and walking defection. An absurd vigilance failure came out. In addition to the defection of Samcheok neckline in June 2019, 10 major accidents occurred in a row over 19 months. 2 months. It is the number 1 in the” he pointed out.

Rep. Shin said, “I will do my best warning in a fragmentary manner this time, and if I go over it, it will burst again in two months.” “If the units under the 23rd Division Sokcho are dismantled, what will we do? “He raised his voice.

Rep. Lee Chae-ik, the power of the people, said, “I think the scientific boundary system will rather promote the opening of security holes.”

Rep. Lee said, “The 22nd Division is said to be the tomb of a star (general), and there are large-scale accidents one after another. If we continue to raise issues one-time and pass by, the accident will occur and will not repeat itself?” I ordered the 22nd Division to find a solution.”

[서울=뉴시스]Reporter Park Jin-hee = In the morning of the 17th, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said, “The personnel who secured recruits from the north of the East Sea Civil Control Line yesterday (estimated defection) wear wetsuits and flippers, and come up to the shore near the Unification Observation Deck south of the GOP (general outpost) It is estimated that it has passed through the drainage passage at the bottom of the coastal railroad line.” The photo shows the southern beach near the Unification Observatory in Goseong-gun, Gangwon-do. 2021.02.17.

Defense Minister Seo-wook said on the issue of the border failure, “I will confirm the clear contents through a first investigation and thoroughly follow up accordingly,” and “I am sorry for causing disappointment to the public as a minister.”

“The scientific system is an auxiliary means, and the reality depends on the person who sees it and operates it. If a person misoperates the scientific system, it may be useless.” said.

He said, “The 22nd Division is a unit that has difficulties guarding the iron fence and the coast at the same time, and there are many difficulties such as various operational elements and natural environment.” “I have to find an element to support and work on it,” he added.
