WASHINGTON, May 23 (Yonhap) -- As Choi Young-jin, South Korea's ambassador to the U.S., wraps up 41 years of public service next week, he has a new goal -- having a chance to contribute to bringing peace to a conflict-ridden area.
"I would like to take some rest for the time being. And if given an opportunity, I hope to do peacekeeping activity once again in a region in need," Choi told reporters.
He was responding to a question about what he plans to do after he quits next Thursday.
