President Park Geun-hye will soon make a public statement on the tragedy.
This was decided at a hastily-arranged closed-door meeting with her senior secretaries on Sunday.
The roughly three-hour meeting took the form of a debate, instead of a briefing, in order to gather various opininons on how to make the nation safer, amid the ongoing uproar about the government's handling of the disaster.
