The prosecution has concluded a 2007 inter-Korean summit transcript does not exist at the national archives, prosecutors said Wednesday.
State prosecutors have been probing to determine whether the late South Korean liberal President Roh Moo-hyun seriously undermined the country's sovereignty during his 2007 summit with then North Korean leader Kim Jong-il by offering to surrender the western maritime border with the North.
After searching all presidential records of the Roh administration of 2003-2008 kept at the National Archives of Korea, just south of Seoul, the Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office said that such a transcript does not exist.
The prosecution office, however, said it has found a "separate summit transcript" in a file management system used by the former Roh administration and that there is evidence that the file might have been destroyed. (Yonhap News)
