Description

박 대통령, 우간다에서 유의미한 북핵 성과 거두고 케냐행 Let's kick things off this Monday evening... in the African continent. President Park Geun-hye wrapped up her visit to Uganda just over an hour ago... and is now heading to Kenya... for the final leg of her tour of East Africa. She brings with her several notable achievements made in Kampala. Our Song Ji-sun is traveling with the presidential press corps and she filed us this report before taking off for Nairobi. President Park leaves Uganda with an invaluable achievement toward reining in North Korea's nuclear ambitions. After summit talks, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni vowed to "disengage" from all military and security cooperation with Pyongyang... and vowed to comply with the UN sanctions on North Korea. "Uganda has been friendly to North Korea, but it's starting to fully implement the UN sanctions on Pyongyang and it will encourage other African nations to participate as well." During her Africa trip, President Park has been seeking support for the global efforts to sanction North Korea -- first at the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and now in Uganda, once a longtime ally of North Korea. In making the move, Uganda put practical and economic cooperation with Seoul before its ties with Pyongyang, as demonstrated in its push to adopt Seoul's Saemaul Undong initiative to modernize its rural communities. President Park also attended the launch of an agricultural training center near the Ugandan capital of Kampala. It's the first of its kind in Africa, and will provide training on Saemaul Undong for 100 community leaders a year, who can then apply the lessons back in their hometowns. "President Park is now off to Nairobi, the last stop on her three-nation East Africa tour. Business will be the focus in Kenya, as it's the biggest economy in the region and functions as a transportation and logistics hub. Song Ji-sun, Arirang News, Kampala."
