South Korea's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (hereinafter referred to as the Ministry of Land and Infrastructure) issued an order to start work on the 29th to more than 2,500 owners of cement trucks who participated in the strike. The South Korean government reviewed and voted at the state affairs meeting that morning to issue a start-to-work order to truck owners who participated in the strike. Since then, Minister of Land and Infrastructure Won Hee-ryong announced at a press conference at the government office building in Seoul at 11:25 a.m. that the order to start work will be issued from now on. Yuan Xilong pointed out that the order to start work is not aimed at punishing truck owners, but to guide them back to work, so as to restore the national logistics chain and minimize the impact of strikes on the national economy.

▲Han Jun: The North Korean nuclear test is only waiting for a political decision and there is no abnormal trend

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (Joint Staff) Bulletin Office Director Kim Joon-rak said at a regular meeting on the 29th that North Korea's seventh nuclear test is ready and only awaits a political decision, but there are currently no changes worthy of attention. South Korean and American intelligence agencies are maintaining close cooperation and closely monitoring North Korea's relevant movements, and the South Korean military maintains a firm response posture.

Some views speculate that North Korea may conduct its seventh nuclear test or launch an intercontinental ballistic missile that day.
