4. SOUNDBITE: (Korean) Lee Ju-young, South Korean Oceans and Fisheries Minister:
"It is the administration's judgement that not only has the possibility of finding a missing passenger become less as the search is repeated over a long period of time, but also the search relying on submergence has reached its limits, as voices concerning safety from the site get louder."
