Opposition lawmakers, defense ministry clash over Jeju naval base
By Kim Eun-jung
SEOUL, Jan. 23 (Yonhap) -- A group of opposition lawmakers on Wednesday visited the defense chief to demand the suspension of ongoing construction for a naval base on the southern resort island of Jeju, but their meeting ended with no progress made on differences over the procedural flaws of the project.

The construction project for a naval base on the southern coast of Jeju has been under way since early 2010, with about 30 percent completed as of the end of 2012.
