New S. Korean Ambassador to China Emphasizes National Interests

Seoul’s new top diplomat in Beijing has pledged to prioritize South Korean national interests, after triggering a controversy with his criticism against South Korean companies over China’s THAAD-related retaliation.

South Korean Ambassador to China Noh Young-min was inaugurated Tuesday in a Beijing ceremony.

He said South Korean companies’ troubles in China are cumulating, and that the problem shouldn’t be left unaddressed.

Last month Noh acknowledged the current challenges facing South Korean companies in China due to a dispute over missile defense, but he also said the inefficient management of South Korean companies are also to blame. 

Meanwhile, China’s Foreign Ministry expressed hope that Noh will play an active role in enhancing mutual understanding between South Korea and China and improving bilateral relationship.

Noh is expected to present his credentials to Chinese President Xi Jinping as early as late this month due to numerous domestic political events scheduled for this month in China, including the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.
