India is an emerging global power specially in the economic domain and is a leader in the Indo-Pacific region as part of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad), South Korea’s envoy Chang Jae-bok said on Tuesday.

Speaking with ANI, the South Korean Ambassador to India said that relations between the two countries are getting strengthened in diverse fields.

“India is an emerging global power, especially in the economic field, security and other issues. It’s part of the Quad (consisting of Australia, Japan, India and the US), so leader in the Indo-Pacific region,” he said.

Bilateral relations between India and South Korea, officially known as the Republic of Korea, were established in 1962 and upgraded to ambassador-level in 1973.
