박근혜 대통령 아프리카, 프랑스 순방 대담 국방대 이병구 교수 The South Korean president's tour of three African countries and France this time around. For the first time since taking office in 2013, President Park will be on African soil... As for France, her state visit comes as the two countries commemorate 130 years of diplomatic relations. The significance and implications of this presidential tour... let's take an in-depth look... Dr. Lee Byeong-gu, Professor at the Korean National Defense University is in the studio with me. Professor Lee, welcome to the program. Let's get right to it. First off, the president's very first tour of the African continent. Of course, many countries have already recognized Africa as the "last blue ocean" opportunity for business and investment. And, not surprisingly, President Park is traveling with a big business delegation. In terms of economic relations, what does the Korean president have in mind as she sets foot on African soil? Another focus. President Park's Africa trip comes as she tries to disrupt North Korea's diplomatic and financial network to discourage its nuclear arms development. What are we expecting from President Park's tour this time around on this front? One of President Park's primary agenda items is her speech at the African Union on Friday. She will be the first South Korean leader to take the podium at the AU headquarters. Explain to us. What is the significance of this speech - what do we expect the focus to be of her address? Lee Byeong-gu, Professor at the Korean National Defense University... thank you indeed for speaking with us tonight. We appreciate it.
