Message from the President of the Republic of Korea
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the British service personnel for their invaluable sacrifices during the Korean War in defence of freedom and democracy in the Republic of Korea.
Your noble sacrifice laid the groundwork for the development of the Republic of Korea and has served as a foundation for mutual trust between Korea and the United Kingdom.
I take great satisfaction from the fact that our two countries have developed friendly and cooperative relations in a wide range of fields over the past 60 years and sincerely hope that these longstanding bilateral ties will see further advancements in the years ahead.
In closing, I would like to extend my best wishes for the continued good health of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and for the everlasting prosperity of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
President of the Republic of Korea
