FP Names Pres. Moon Among 50 Global Thinkers

President Moon Jae-in has been named one of the world’s top 50 thinkers by American news publication Foreign Policy.

The presidential office of Cheong Wa Dae announced via social media Tuesday that Moon had made this year's "Global Thinkers 50" list. 

The magazine assessed that despite the corruption scandal involving the former Park Geun-hye administration and the security threats from North Korea, Moon has continued efforts for an open government based on dialogue and peace.

It also praised Moon’s diplomatic efforts to successfully build bridges with China over the deployment of the U.S. THAAD antimissile system to South Korea.

The magazine particularly credited Moon for his handling of North Korea, saying that despite the regime’s provocations, he has not flinched in his stance that talks with Pyongyang are vital.

It added that, while there's no easy solution, his forceful push for peace has been a welcome alternative to the saber rattling out of Pyongyang and Washington.
