Park Geun-hye’s approval rating rises, after China parade visit

A survey shows South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s approval rating has risen above 50 percent for the first time in one and a half years.

The poll, conducted across the nation from Sept. 1 to 4, shows 54 percent of respondents voiced support for Park.

Experts say the higher public support could be boosted by an increasing endorsement of her policy on diplomatic issues.

Park has just returned from a trip to China, where she met with President Xi Jinping, and attended a military parade in Tiananmen Square to mark the 70th anniversary of China’s victory over Japan in World War II.
