Round-up: Today’s top stories in the morning papers in Korea (September 12, 2016)
1. After North Korea conducted the fifth nuclear test, the Park Geun-hye administration will implement stronger sanctions against the country. However, the New York Times reports that sanctions against the North have failed and freezing nuclear activities will be the solution to the problem.
The Kim Jong-un regime has gone out of control, and he probably will not pay attention to what others say.
2. Despite major airlines in Australia and the US ban passengers from using the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport maintain their original position, saying there will be no problem. Due to rising criticism, the government, however, urged travelers to turn off their devices and refrain from plugging them in. Experts point that the authority should come up with some safety measures to protect consumers.
Well, this is exactly what the government does in South Korea. The authority is not concerned about people’s safety. We know the fact from the law to restrict phone subsidies.
