The newly appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Korea to Armenia Chang Hojin (residence in Moscow) presented his credentials to President Vahagn Khachaturyan.
Congratulating the Ambassador on his appointment, President Khachaturyan wished him productive work. “We find our relations with the Republic of Korea very important. The diplomatic relations between our countries were established in 1992 and have been developing dynamically ever since. Indeed, we actively cooperate at the state level, including different international platforms.
We are in a quite complex situation with our neighbours and throughout these years you have always maintained a balanced position, which we find very important. I am sure that you will keep this policy in the future.
I am also sure that our relations can get to a new level and we will be able to use the means and opportunities we have, and I mean not only the development of political relations but also the fields of economy, culture, science and education,” President Khachaturyan noted.
Ambassador Chang Hojin expressed his gratitude for the hospitality and noted: “It is my great honour to work as the Ambassador to the Republic of Armenia which has a long and rich history, culture and traditions.
As you very rightly mentioned, our two countries have developed a very good friendship and cooperated in various fields, encompassing foreign policy, trade and cooperation on international platforms and people-to-people exchange.”
During the meeting, the interlocutors exchanged ideas on the perspectives of the development of cooperation in the fields of high technologies, tourism, education and science. They also touched upon the application of the Korean experience in the atomic energy operation and the possibilities of Armenian-Korean cooperation in the construction of a new nuclear power plant.
Both sides attached importance to the promotion of inter-parliamentary diplomacy and political dialogue, as well as high-level mutual visits. At the end of the meeting, the sides agreed upon continuing the working contacts and negotiations aimed at opening diplomatic missions in both countries.
