THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: PM scheduled to give policy speech to parliament

The government is stepping up efforts to get its 3.7 billion dollar supplementary budget through parliament at the National Assembly.

Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon is scheduled to give a policy speech to lawmakers on the extra budget at 1400 hours local time but it is still unclear whether it will go ahead as some parties have vowed to stay away.

Oppositions remain at odds over numerous bills and efforts to revise the Constitution, preventing them from normalizing parliamentary proceedings since the first day fo the April extraordinary session.

Eyes are on the meeting between the Assembly Speaker and the floor leaders of the main opposition parties this morning.

The proposed supplementary budget is the second of its kind under the Moon Jae-in administration that aims to improve the employment market for young Koreans.
