South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday called for bipartisan efforts on security issues at a meeting with top five leaders in the administrative, judiciary and legislative branches of the government.

Moon said at the meeting that if a permanent consultation body is formed between ruling and opposition parties and the government to share views on security and make bipartisan efforts, it would help unite people's minds.

The president stressed the importance for the unified minds of people by sharing the government's security views with people, according to the presidential Blue House.

Attending the meeting was Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon, National Assembly Speaker Chung Sye-kyun, the new chief of the Supreme Court Kim Meong-su, head of the National Election Commission Kim Yong-deok and a justice and acting chief of the Constitutional Court Kim Yi-su.

It was the second time since Moon's inauguration in May that the president met with the five highest-level leaders of the country.

South Korea, Moon said, was not in a situation that the country can play a leading role in the current security crisis on the Korean Peninsula as the crisis was created by external factors.

Moon did not elaborate on what the external factors were but he emphasized that if the country is internally united, the crisis could be overcome despite the external factors.

Tensions ran high on the Korean peninsula following the resumed war of rhetoric between Pyongyang and Washington.
