Korean Ambassador to Sri Lanka Woonjin Jeong yesterday called on Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa at Temple Trees.

The Ambassador said Sri Lanka is “one of the safest countries” and encouraged Korean investors to explore opportunities in Sri Lanka.

Ambassador Jeong also congratulated the Prime Minister on victory at the recently-held General Election and said it was “trust and confidence” that resulted in the mandate the Government received.

He also commended the Government on its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and said the Korean Government will provide tangible support to Sri Lanka in coping with the COVID-19 crisis.

The two delegations discussed a number of priorities for further cooperation between Sri Lanka and Korea that included FDIs, exports, tourism and migrant workers.

Prime Minister Rajapaksa recalled the telephone conversation with Korean Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun earlier this week and renewed his invitation for the Korean Prime Minister to make his first ever visit to Sri Lanka.
