On May 10, Yoon Suk-yeol was inaugurated as the 20th president of South Korea. Yoon’s foreign and security policy is expected to mark a sharp departure from the previous administration. Throughout his campaign, he clearly stated his intention to bolster the South Korea-U.S. alliance and strongly respond to any possible North Korean provocations.
