The BBC reported on the 4th (local time) that Britain, which dispatched 4,000 people, the largest number for a single country, is withdrawing its Scouts from the Saemangeum camp to a hotel at the World Scout Jamboree in Saemangeum, North Jeolla토토사이트 Province.
The Scouts of England issued a statement today saying they would be moving Scouts to hotels “over the next two days to ease the general pressure on the field”.
The British Scout Federation said, “While at the Jamboree site, the British Volunteer Team ensured that the youth and adult volunteers had adequate food and water, shelter from the unusually hot weather, and toilet and washing facilities suitable for an event of this size. We put all our efforts together with the organizers to make it possible,” he said.
As originally planned, the British Scout Federation is scheduled to return home on the 13th, the day after the Jamboree event closed.
Earlier, a British Foreign Ministry spokesperson said the day before, “We are continuing to monitor the situation of the 2023 Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree.”
Britain dispatched around 4,000 scouts, the largest number among participating countries.
After the report was announced, the atmosphere inside the Jamboree camp is also agitated. Regarding this report, it is known that neither the Jamboree Organizing Committee nor the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family have been able to figure out the details so far.
An official from the organizing committee responded to the news of the withdrawal of the British scouts, saying, “There was a story like that, but I know that the British scouts are now at the campsite.” Lee Ki-soon, vice minister of the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, also said, “We are still checking.”
Jeonbuk-do is also keenly aware of whether it will lead to the ‘domino withdrawal’ of other countries. An official from Jeonbuk Province said, “It is fortunate that the decision to return to the country has not yet been made, but we are closely monitoring the situation by mobilizing all channels.”
