They say that the nuclear energy is threatening their lives. (SOUNDBITE) (Korean) PROTESTER LEE HEONSEOK, SAYING: "The nuclear energy industry told us the industry is safe, but actually, there have been many accidents. We think these accidents will happen again. Therefore, we insist the nuclear energy industry should be brought to an end." About 200 corporate leaders and energy experts are meeting over the next three days to discuss nuclear energy issues and atomic safety and security. South Korean Prime Minister Kim Kwang-Sik spoke at the meeting where he called for international cooperation on nuclear issues.
