반기문, JP 예방 '충청 대망론' 대권 행보 본격화 Visiting UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has met with former South Korean Prime Minister Kim Jong-pil,... further fueling speculation Ban is considering a run for the presidency next year. The two met for around 30 minutes on Saturday at Kim's house in central Seoul. No one else was at the meeting. Pundits say the two probably touched upon the 2017 presidential race,... but nothing is known for sure. As well as being one of the world's most powerful diplomats,... Ban's credentials as a possible presidential candidate come from his political base, which is Chungcheong-do Province, a region considered a bellwether for national sentiment. Kim, who served as Korea's prime minister twice,... is also a prominent politician from the region. Ban's remarks earlier this week... that he's thinking of what role he should play as a South Korean citizen after his term as UN Secretary-General is over in December... seemed to suggest a possible run for presidency.
