South Korea president’s approval rating rises following US visit

Seoul, May 1 (EFE).- South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol’s approval rating has risen for the first time in four weeks following a state visit to the United States, the results of a poll released Monday showed.

The percentage of people who approved of Yoon’s performance increased by 1.8 percentage points from the previous week to reach 34.5 percent, according to a poll conducted by Realmeter.

This is Yoon’s highest approval rating since the last week of March, when 36.7 percent of people gave him a positive assessment.

The disapproval rating of the South Korean president also declined 2.1 percentage points from the previous week to 62.6 percent.

The poll was carried out among 2,507 adults between Apr. 24 and 28 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points and a 95 percent confidence level.

The results can be attributed to Yoon’s state visit to the US between Apr. 24 and 29 to mark the 70th anniversary of the military alliance between the two countries.

During the visit, Yoon and US President Joe Biden agreed to strengthen their extended deterrence military against North Korea through the establishment of a new bilateral consultative group and a provision for US nuclear-armed submarines to dock in South Korea. EFE
