President’s Office “Park Chung-hee is also a South Korean Labor Party? “It’s hard to compare him to Hong Beom-do since he converted.”

On the 30th, the President’s Office drew a line between the opposition party’s argument comparing the controversy over the removal of the bust of independence activist General Hong Beom-do and the preservation of the national defense monument of former President Park Chung-hee, who had a history of being a member of the South Korean Workers’ Party.

Presidential Chief of Staff Kim Dae-gi attended the general meeting of the National Assembly Steering Committee on this day and said, “Compared to General Hong and former President Park Chung-hee, it is a bit different. “There is no comparison between the person who later joined our Armed Forces and the person who went all the way (in the Communist Party),” he said. When Yoo Jeong-ju, a member of the Democratic Party of Korea, pointed out that if General Hong’s career in the Soviet Communist Party is an issue, it is also a problem that former President Park Chung-hee’s autograph and national monument is located at the Military Academy. He responded, “A person who converted cannot be considered a communist.” . Cho Tae-yong, head of the National Security Office, also said, “It is true that (former President Park) was a member of the Communist Party, but she worked hard for national development for more than 20 years and has the greatest contribution in achieving economic development from a swamp of poverty to a large country, so it is right to judge her comprehensively메이저놀이터.” did.

The President’s Office stated that there is no set policy regarding the controversy over the removal of the bust of General Hong, but that a review of the relocation is necessary. When People Power Party lawmaker Seo Jeong-sook asked about General Hong’s suspicions about his involvement in the ‘Jayu City Disaster’, Director Cho said, “We do not deny General Hong’s independence achievements,” but added, “The life after the Jayu City disaster and the daily life of the Military Academy cadets in a special institution called the Military Academy. “Finding someone who encourages you and serves as a role model is a matter that needs to be reviewed and judged with a critical mind as to whether these two things are a good fit.” Lim Jong-deuk, second deputy director of the National Security Office, said, “We recognize General Hong Beom-do’s achievements in the independence struggle. However, in relation to his actions after the Jayu City disaster, it is not correct that (the bust of General Hong) is located in a place where military cadets are located,” he said.

The Jayu City Disaster was an incident in 1921 in which the Russian Communist Party’s Far East Republic army massacred Jayu City’s independence army, and they expressed the same opinion as the Ministry of National Defense, which weighed in on the suspicion that General Hong was involved in this. However, the accepted opinion in academia is that General Hong was not directly related to this incident.

However, Director Cho said, “As the National Security Office, we do not have a policy,” and added, “I think it would be good if these aspects were filtered out and opinions were gathered before erecting the bust in 2018.” Director Cho said, “The President said, ‘I won’t tell you what to do. He said, ‘I want you to think about what is right.’” President Yoon Seok-yeol also said that no conclusion was reached at the Cabinet meeting the day before.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Han Deok-soo stated that it is right to relocate the bust of General Hong from the Ministry of National Defense and Yuksaro. Prime Minister Han said in a comprehensive policy inquiry by the National Assembly Budget and Accounts Special Committee on this day, “I understand that the Military Academy is pursuing a plan to reorganize monuments on campus to match the identity of the military academy and cadet education, and I believe it is reasonable.”
