Speaker of South Korean National Assembly visits Israel E-mail

The Speaker of the National Assembly of South Korea, Moon Hee-sang, visited Israel’s Parliament, the Knesset, on 24 December, along with 25 senior officials, including four members of the National Assembly.

The delegation held a work meeting hosted by Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein, who commented: “Israel and South Korea share a common destiny.”

He noted that South Korea lives “under the threat of missiles from North Korea, and we are threatened by Iran on a number of fronts”. Likewise, both countries “live in tense regions”.

Touching on Israel’s evolving status in the Middle East, Edelstein said that “it is hard to think of a solution in the form of dialogue with the Iranian side. However, new winds in the Middle East are a source of optimism: a number of countries that up until now refused to have any contact with Israel are changing their policies, and I hope that they are a harbinger of change in our region.”
