“Regarding the affair of Korean nationals requesting to return home, we have consulted the Korean embassy. [Their view is that] the Korean nationals currently living in our country have many political issues, besides there are too many of them, under the current situation they will not be approved to return [to their home country]. Therefore, our ministry believes this kind of issue can be delayed and dealt with later. If Korean nationals press us on the issue, we can refuse them gently using the [ongoing] war as our reason for refusal.”
