S. Korean President Moon says his military must take its fate into its own hands and push..


Gathered at the nation’s top office today
were top commanders of South Korea’s entire armed forces. There, President Moon Jae-in laid out his
vision for a strong military reform. Moon Connyoung shares with us his remarks. The military must take its fate into its own
hands and push forward with reform. Those are the firm words of South Korea’s
Commander in Chief as he chaired a meeting of the top commanders of the nation’s entire
armed forces at the presidential Blue House on Friday. “We must build a strong military in terms
of quality. We are in a security condition where we must
be fully prepared against not only conventional warfare but also cyber terrorism and international
crimes.” The president also said his military must
possess comprehensive defense capabilities that can deal with the existing confrontation
between the two Koreas while countering threats from all sorts of unidentified sources at
the same time, as well. The issue of wartime operational control was
also raised during the meeting. “We must significantly strengthen our military’s
independent defense capabilities and have wartime operational control of our troops
transferred at an early date. We must assume leadership of the South Korea,
U.S. joint forces.” Rooting out corruption in the military and
the defense industry must also be front and center of the reform, stressed South Korea’s
Commander-in-Chief. “Corruption in the defense industry is a serious
act of treason that betrays the people’s trust. I ask you to firmly keep in mind that the
nation and the people are the only ones the military must stay loyal to.” Moon Connyoung, Arirang News, the Blue House.
