The Police Guard Security Group, which will handle security for foreign heads of state attending the Korea-ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Commemorative Summit in Busan next month, held its launching ceremony on Oct. 30 at the Suyeong Bay Yachting Center in the port city’s Haeundae District.

Under the command of the Busan Metropolitan Police Agency, the group consists of a SWAT team and traffic patrol. The agency also pledged to do its best to maximize security and protection for the leaders of ASEAN member countries during the summit.

Min Gab-ryong, commissioner general of the Korean National Police Agency, said, “We must thoroughly prepare for even a minor terrorist threat and maintain the highest safety level to secure perfect protection and safety of the leaders of the participating countries,” adding, “Until the successful closing of the special summit, please defend safety and order inside and outside of the event venue.”
