Moon Jae-in sworn in as South Korea’s new president

South Korea has a new President, Moon Jae-in who was sworn in yesterday after his victory at the recently held elections.
In his inaugural address, he vowed to address the economy and relations with the North saying that he would even be willing to visit Pyongyang under the right circumstances.
Mr Moon took his oath of office in Seoul’s National Assembly building a day after his decisive win. The former human rights lawyer and son of North Korean refugees is known for his liberal views.

He has also vowed to unify a divided country reeling from a corruption scandal which saw his predecessor, Park Geun-hye, impeached a few months back.
