President Park apologizes for ferry disaster

President Park Geun-hye has apologized to the nation for the Sewol-ho ferry accident, more specifically the government's poor initial response to the tragedy.
At a Cabinet meeting Tuesday, the president said she regrets not having rooted out long-standing problems in society that contributed to the deadly accident.
She then vowed to make right social irregularities to regain public trust and make Korea a safe place to live.
President Park said a national safety ministry will be created under the prime minister's office to efficiently manage natural and man-made disasters.
She also called on the Cabinet to begin thinking of ways to revamp Korea's safety system and come up with appropriate measures.
