The presidential office announced that Deputy Spokesman Lee Jae-myeong expressed his resignation after recent leaks of President Yoon Seok-yeol’s tour schedule to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Switzerland.
A high-ranking official from the presidential office met with reporters at the presidential office in Yongsan on the 29th and said, “The presidential office regrets that the foreign tour itinerary provided to the press corps was leaked to the outside, causing disrespect and danger in terms of security and diplomacy.” I took moral responsibility for it and expressed my gratitude.”
It is explained that the presidential schedule shared with the press corps just before the visit of President Yoon, which lasted 8 days and 6 nights from the 14th, was leaked to the outside, and as a result, the deputy spokesperson in charge of communication with the reporters resigned.
Ahead of the regular tour, the presidential office has notified part of the president’s schedule in advance to the reporters on the premise of an embargo (a suspension of reporting until a certain point) and external security for the convenience of reporters. However, as the President’s schedule was leaked prior to this tour, it is known that the President’s office asked the UAE for understanding and partially changed the schedule before leaving the country.
In September of last year, after Spokesperson Kang In-sun was appointed overseas public relations secretary, the spokesperson position, which had been vacant for four months, followed by the deputy spokesperson position, so for the time being, Kim Eun-hye, chief public relations officer, is expected to play ‘three roles per person’.
Meanwhile, the presidential office plans to discuss follow-up measures related to this security incident.
A high-ranking official said, “We plan to review measures to prevent recurrence from various angles.”
