Office of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jongro-ku, Seoul
Minister of Foreign Affairs Kim Jae-hak had tried to call the Chinese ambassador after he finished the cabinet meeting, but he was unable to reach him because the ambassador was on a business trip to China. So, he summoned the ambassador to his office on the day of his return, the 13th. The Minister was seated across the ambassador, Cha Yao Ke Ming, who was a typical Southern Chinese gentleman with a wide face.
"I will ask frankly," Minister Kim Jae-hak said. "What is the reason behind neglecting the safety of the Korean corporations that are being threatened by illegal protests within China?"
"What are you talking about? The Chinese government and police are maintaining security for the Korean corporations and people with all its power."
