FM parries attack over stock manipulation scandal
SEOUL, Jan. 27 (Yonhap) -- Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan defended against an attack on him Friday, saying he would not have requested an audit into a stock manipulation scandal involving members of his ministry had he tried to cover it up.

Independent lawmaker Jeong Tae-keun attacked the minister and the ministry's vice ministers for allegedly hiding and delaying the truth behind the scandal related to a diamond mining project in Cameroon.
