Seoul, Aug. 20, 2020 (Yonhap/Naija247news) South Korea’s top national security officials had discussions on the recent resurgence of new coronavirus infections in the nation, during their weekly meeting, Cheong Wa Dae said on Thursday.

According to the presidential office, they agreed to concentrate “every necessary effort, including the injection of the security sector’s resources’’ to support the anti-virus fight.

It was briefing media on the results of the National Security Council (NSC)’s standing committee session presided over by Suh Hoon, Director of National Security at Cheong Wa Dae.

The NSC members also reviewed the security situations on the Korean Peninsula and in the nearby region, including North Korea.

They discussed ways to “stably manage the diplomatic and security situations’’ of South Korea and to take follow-up measures related to President Moon Jae-in’s Liberation Day speech last weekend.

In the speech, he said his government “is ready to sit down with the Japanese government at any time’’ to discuss compensating Korean victims of Japanese forced labour during World War II.
