PELOSI SNUBBED: South Korean President Skips Out on Meeting with US Speaker – Didn’t Want to Interrupt His Vacation

Speaker Nancy Pelosi with South Korean Speaker Kim Jin-pyo

Speaker Nancy Pelosi traveled to South Korea after her historic visit to Taiwan this week.

President Yoon Suk-yeol refused to meet with her.   He did not want to interrupt his vacation.

Pelosi met with the South Korean Speaker instead.


The New York Post reported:

South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol is under fire for opting not to cut his holiday short in order to meet face-to-face with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday — with critics accusing him of not wanting to antagonize China following Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.

The conservative leader’s official reason for not seeing the California Democrat during her brief visit to Seoul was that he had already scheduled time off for a pre-planned summer vacation, his office said.

But local media and other critics quickly slammed the South Korean leader, accusing Yoon of prioritizing strong ties with China — South Korea’s biggest trading partner.

Yoon opted to hold a 40-minute phone call with Pelosi, during which they discussed the US-South Korean alliance, foreign policy and other issues, his office said.
