Vijesti o Koreji

Sorry svi koji žele da pišem nešto o Hrvatskoj, a ne o Koreji. O Hrvatskoj čitajte na drugim stranicama i blogovima; na korejskom blogu čitajte o Koreji.

US says S Korea talks ‘not going well’

US and Korean negotiators were scheduled to resume free trade talks on Saturday after failing to reach an agreement Friday night. The White House had earlier warned that free trade talks with South Korea were “not going well” as negotiators for the two countries raced against the clock to seal a deal that would boost bilateral trade by as much as $20bn a year and give them preferential access to each others’ markets.

Officials in Washington raised the prospect that the talks would end in failure. A White House spokesperson said: ”The talks are not going well. Unless the negotiations show some sign of progress in the next few hours this agreement will most likely not come together.” After 10 months of intensive negotiations, the two sides had reached agreement on only three of the 17 areas under review – competition, customs and government procurement – although earlier this week they said they were ”very close” to deals on eight other chapters, including financial services, labour and the environment.

There has been no sign of any breakthrough on those areas as Kim Hyun-chong, South Korea’s trade minister, and Karan Bhatia, the deputy US trade representative, took over as lead negotiators. The deal must be agreed by the March 31 deadline to take advantage of Mr Bush’s ”fast-track” authority.

S.Korea resumes aid shipments to N.Korea

South Korean aid shipments to North Korea resumed in full swing after video reunions of separated families began on Tuesday. The government sent 60,000 blankets to North Korea on Wednesday. The shipment of blankets, part of a flood relief campaign, was halted after Pyongyang conducted a nuclear test last October.

The shipment also included 11 other relief items including disinfectants for the prevention of foot-and-mouth disease. Some 15,000 tons of rice and 70,000 tons of cement will go north next month. A ship carrying 6,500 tons of fertilizer left Yeosu port for North Korea on Wednesday, part of 300,000 tons of fertilizer due to be sent to the North by late June. The provision of fertilizer will cost W108 billion (US$1=W939) including freight fees. North Korea asked the South Korean Red Cross to offer fertilizer aid on March 7.

The government will provide North Korea with some W3.5 billion of materials and W400 million in cash for the construction of a family reunion center equipped with video facilities.

S. Korea, Japan to have diplomatic talks

Diplomatic chiefs from South Korea and Japan will meet over the weekend to discuss North Korea's atomic drive, Seoul officials said Friday.Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso will fly into South Korea's resort island of Jeju Saturday to meet his South Korean counterpart, Song Min-soon.

During the two-day talks, the two ministers will also discuss ways to repair frayed bilateral ties over history rows, ministry officials said. The ministerial meeting is the first of its kind since December 2006, when Song visited Tokyo. Seoul-Tokyo ties have been at their lowest ebb since Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stirred anger by saying there was no evidence that Tokyo had coerced Asian women into sex slavery during World War II. Seoul has expressed "deep regrets" over Abe's remarks.

S. Korea beats N. Korea 2-0 in football friendly match

South Korea's under-17 national football team beat their North Korean counterparts 2-0 in a friendly match in Jeju World Cup stadium on Jeju Island Friday night.

The North Korean team came to South Korea's southernmost island for the first time last Tuesday for a month-long training session. Their training session was focused on preparations for the FIFA U-17 World Cup, a world youth championship South Korea is to host from Aug. 18 to Sept. 9. The two Korean teams will have a second friendly match at Suwon World Cup stadium on Monday. Suwon is one of eight host cities for the U-17 World Cup.

Six Million Children Immunized Against Measles in DPR Korea

Two infants and two adults died and more than 1,000 people were hospitalized, according to reports. The second phase of the campaign, in which the UN World Health Organization (WHO) is also participating, is set to start on 10 April and will aim to reach an additional 10.2 million people between 16 and 45 years of age, UNICEF's Chief of Health and Nutrition in the DPRK Majeed Ezatullah said.

S Korea plans to launch first rocket in 2008

The South Korean Science Ministry said Friday that the country plans to launch the first rocket to put a satellite in orbit in late 2008. The ministry said Russia will provide help in technology to help South Korea's launch.

South Korea and Russia signed the technology safeguard agreement (TSA in October 2006. Before that, the two sides agreed on a space technology cooperation pact in September 2004. According to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency, if Russia ratifies the deal, full-fledged work can begin on the construction of two-stage Korea Space Launch Vehicle 1 (KSLV1), which will send a 100-kg multipurpose science satellite into a low orbit around the earth.

So far, South Korea has relied on foreign rockets to send all of its satellites into space.

South Korea to cooperate actively with Kazakhstan in education

South Korea is interested very much to cooperate actively with Kazakhstan in education, reported yesterday meeting Kazakh Prime-Minister Karim Massimov South Korean Vice Prime-Minister, Minister of Education and Human Resources Development Kim Min Il.

As Kazakh Prime-Minister press-service reported, during the meeting questions of strengthening cooperation between both countries in education and science and education of Kazakh technical students in the frames of "Bolashak" program were discussed. According to press-service, in a period of 2005-2006 in the frames of RK President international scholarship 4 Kazakh citizens were sent to study in South Korea. Besides, in present time the question of traineeships and students/teachers exchange of both countries is examined.

Microblogging in Korea

Some of us may have heard the chatter about Twitter, the strangely popular company with a simple offering: Microblogging. Small snippets of where you are sprinkled with tiny conversations for busy bloggers. Similar to that other forgotten kid: Jaiku.

Well, Korea now has its own local answer to Twitter--"Me2day". Like many beta services, the site is pretty basic for the moment and doesn't come with all the bells and whistles of its western counterparts. It allows only Web posting, but submissions via SMS and IM (like Sabifoo--Instant Possibility) are expected to trundle along anytime soon.

For the technically minded, Me2day is being built on the hot new platform, Ruby on Rails. It's all very interesting from a Web 2.0 perspective, but will the service take off? Is there room for a specific Tagged-like service for blogs that's over and above the already popular idea of "moblogging"? We'll see. It may be cool for CNET to allow me to post my missives in a somewhat simpler manner, for instance, straight from my Blackberry. The site is not very useful to a regular user as it's beta, but below's a screenshot:
