Parties Bicker over Memoir Accusation of UN Vote Abstention

Rival parties continued their dispute over a former foreign minister's accusation in his memoir that the Roh Moo-hyun administration in 2007 checked with Pyongyang before deciding to abstain from a UN vote on a North Korean human rights resolution.

The ruling Saenuri Party's spokesman, Rep. Yeom Dong-yeol, on Wednesday pressed then-presidential chief of staff Moon Jae-in to shed light on the issue, citing media reports that the voting decision was made only a couple hours before the UN referendum. 

The Minjoo Party of Korea Chairwoman Choo Mi-ae hit back at the Saenuri for accusing the former main opposition chief Moon of conspiring with the North. She said her party will resort to a legal solution against the Saenuri's chairman and secretary general. 

The minor opposition People's Party interim chief Park Jie-won said that Moon should not gloss over the matter while warning the ruling camp against driving politics into an ideological debate.
