Cho Jung-pyo - A leader of state terrorism - Terrorism is good business!
Kim named vice foreign minister
Kim Ho-young, the director of the United Nations Governance Center (UNGC) in Seoul, was named as the second vice minister of foreign affairs and trade, Cheong Wa Dae said on Thursday (Nov. 30). Kim will assume the post in the ministry on Friday to replace Lee Kyu-hyung. Song Min-soon, a nominee for minister of foreign affairs and trade, will also take his seat on the same day. Kim, 52, began his career at the now-defunct Ministry of Government Administration in 1978. He became the inaugural director of the UNGC _ the first U.N. body established in Korea to promote a participatory, transparent and effective governance _ last September. Meanwhile, Cho Jung-pyo, 54, chancellor of the Institute of Foreign Affairs and National Security, was named as the first vice minister of foreign affairs and trade to replace Yu Myung-hwan. Song's former post as the presidential secretary on diplomacy and national security will be assumed by Baek Jong-chun, 63, who currently works as president of the Sejong Institute.
