Chung Eui-yong is a South Korean diplomat and a politician currently serving as Minister of Foreign Affairs under President Moon Jae-in from February 2021 after serving as his first Director of National Security from 2017 to 2020.

He was returned to the 17th National Assembly in the 2004 elections as a proportional representative for the Uri Party. In the National Assembly, he was a member of the Special Committee on United States–Korea Free Trade Agreement.

In January 2021, he replaced Kang Kyung-hwa as the new South Korean Foreign Minister.

Political activity

In March 2018, as South Korea's Special Envoy to North Korea, Chung Eui-yong visited Pyongyang to discuss the required steps to denuclearise North Korea. He then flew to the United States for a meeting with President Donald Trump and to announce the Trump-Kim summit.

On November 4, 2019, at a waiting room on the sidelines of the ASEAN Plus 3 (Japan, China, and South Korea) summit held near Bangkok, when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe talked with South Korean President Moon Jae-in for 11 minute, Chung Eui-yong took photos, and they were published without the approval of the Japanese side.
