[The Hankyoreh, June 15 2007] [Interview] President Roh on North Korea, the media, and the upcoming election

"An Inter-Korean summit won't be possible unless North Korea's nuclear problem is resolved."

Regarding controversy surrounding the government's media reform plans, Roh said, "Let's prove who is right through a public debate [between the president and journalists]." He continued, "In South Korea, the matter of real press freedom lies in freedom from owners of media companies, not on [the number of government] press rooms or freedom from 'political powers.' "
