South Korean Deputy Prime Minister visits Israel E-mail

South Korean Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister Hwang Woo-yea visited Israel on an official trip, and was warmly greeted by Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on 29 April.

The Deputy Prime Minister also met with Reuven Rivlin, Israel’s President, and visited some educational establishments and met with academics, professors and some business leaders from the Korean-Israeli community.

During his meeting with Minister Hwang Woo-yea, Prime Minister Netanyahu gave a press conference at which he highlighted Israel and South Korea’s excellent relationships and the recent Lausanne framework, which deals with Iran’s nuclear programme, mirroring South Korea’s position facing its neighbour, North Korea.

“I am very concerned that the Lausanne framework is repeating the mistakes made with North Korea. Under the Lausanne framework, Iran is left with the ability to develop with R&D advanced centrifuges that actually advance its nuclear programme; I think the repetition of these mistakes is a great historic blunder,” said Prime Minister Netanyahu.
