The South Korean government on Tuesday announced that it will launch a presidential advisory committee on social integration in mid-November in a bid to promote national unity.

According to the Ministry of Public Administration and Security, the Cabinet approved the establishment of the committee, whose main job is to advise president on ways to narrow political, social, regional and generational divides.

The committee will be made up of some 35 members representing all elements of society, it said.

The move comes as South Korean President Lee Myung-bak promised in June to launch a special committee of such kind amid deepening social gaps that some people said to follow the death of former President Roh Moo-huyn.
