South Korea lauds Lanka’s development after conflict


South Korea has emphasized that it will extend full support to Sri Lanka in its journey towards becoming Asia’s Wonder.

The South Korean Ambassador to Sri Lanka has lauded the massive development that has taken place since routing terrorism.

In an interview with Independent Television Network (ITN), Korea’s Ambassador to Sri Lanka Chang Won-sam emphasized that South Korea will always support Sri Lanka’s nation building programme.

The Korean diplomat said that the strong ties between the two countries will remain in the future too. The Sri Lankan President visited Korea in 2012 and the Korean President visited Sri Lanka last year. This helped to further solidify relations between the two countries.

The Korean Government was giving a significant support for Sri Lanka’s economic development. Also the Koika programme launched in South Korea is directing special attention to human resource and skills development. He mentioned that action will be taken to exchange with Sri Lanka experiences which led to Korea development. Terrorist activities had not been reported from Sri Lanka since the island nation ended the conflict in 2009. It is an outstanding victory achieved by Sri Lanka.

This, the Korean Ambassador said was the major victory achieved by Sri Lanka under the President’s leadership. He added that improvements achieved by Sri Lanka in Reconciliation, rehabilitation and rebuilding spheres, is immense.
