Yoon Suk-yeol has been sworn in as the 13th president of South Korea.

But the result was one of the closest in the country’s history – with the final count separated by less than 1%.
He has pledged a tougher “reset” on relations with China and North Korea and intends to bolster the security alliance South Korea has with the United States.
