SEOUL Hombre Negras Plata Adidas Ultra Boost 3.0 LTD España , May 21 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Sunday named top-level presidential staff and cabinet members on security, foreign affairs and economy.

Moon told a press conference at the presidential Blue House, announcing his appointment of Chung Eui-yong as his top national security advisor who leads the National Security Office of the Blue House.

Chung is a career diplomat who was mainly in charge of trade. He is a former lawmaker of the Uri Party, a predecessor of the current ruling Democratic Party.

Moon told reporters that under the past governments, security was seen from the narrow perspective of national defense, saying the diplomatic role became more significant in tackling the DPRK's nuclear program.

Moon Chung-in, an honorary professor at Yonsei University in Seoul, and Hong Seok-hyun, former chief of a local newspaper and cable channel, were named special presidential aides for unification Adidas Ultra Boost 4.0 Hombre Blancas Gris Two España , security and diplomatic affairs.
