The President's Office said it will hold a security situation review meeting soon. Let's go to the Yongsan President's Office.

KIM: Tell us about it.


The President's Office announced in a press release around 7:5 a.m. that a meeting to review the security situation will be held soon.

He added that if necessary, the National Security Council and the NSC will decide whether to hold a meeting.

So far, we have not received any further news on whether the Security Situation Review Meeting has begun.

The Security Situation Review Meeting will be held under the chairmanship of National Security Affairs Secretary Cho Tae-yong.

Initially, the President's Office reportedly considered convening an NSC chaired by the head of the National Security Office in response to the news of North Korea's launch, but after the initial assessment of the projectile, it was decided to hold a meeting to review the security situation.

However, the decision to hold the NSC on a necessary basis appears to be based on the decision not to get involved in North Korea's tactics while reacting sensitively to North Korea's moves, as it is believed that the launch vehicle launched by North Korea was equipped with a reconnaissance satellite.

President Yoon Suk-yeol reiterated cooperation with allies in a video message at a high-level meeting to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the PSI Non-Proliferation Initiative that opened yesterday (20 March) in Jeju Island, saying, "North Korea continues to illegally procure materials and funds necessary for nuclear and missile development despite UN Security Council sanctions."
