President Yoon Anticipates Stronger Strategic Partnership with India

SEOUL - South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol expressed optimism on Sunday about enhancing the country's special strategic partnership with India. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between South Korea and India, a relationship that officially began on December 10, 1973.

According to Yonhap News Agency, Yoon shared his thoughts in a post on X, previously known as Twitter, where he celebrated the significant milestone of five decades of friendship between the two nations. "Celebrating 50 incredible years of friendship between South Korea and India! Look forward to working with PM Modi to fortify our Special Strategic Partnership," Yoon stated, referencing Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The commitment to bolstering the bilateral relationship was reaffirmed during a meeting in September between Yoon and Modi at the G20 summit in New Delhi. The leaders agreed to enhance strategic communication and cooperation, building upon the foundation laid in 2015 when South Korea and India elevated their ties to a "special strategic partnership."

This strengthening alliance underscores the growing significance of Indo-Korean relations in the geopolitical landscape, as both countries look to deepen collaboration and mutual understanding in various domains.
