South Korean Prime Minister Pays Tribute to Dominican Republic Founders

SANTO DOMINGO – The prime minister of South Korea, Lee Nak-yeon, who is on an official visit to the Dominican Republic, took part Thursday in a wreath laying ceremony at the Altar de la Patria (Altar of the Homeland) in Santo Domingo, accompanied by Dominican Foreign Minister Miguel Vargas.

Vargas greeted the Korean prime minister at the monument honoring the Dominican Republic’s founders, where a mixed battalion of the Regiment of the Guard of Honor received the two dignitaries, who were accompanied by diplomats from their respective countries.

The South Korean and Dominican national anthems were played before and after the ceremony, during which a moment of silence was observed at the Altar of the Homeland.

Lee Nak-yeon arrived in the Dominican Republic on Wednesday and he will meet with the country’s president, Danilo Medina, on Thursday, representing the first official bilateral meeting between the leaders of the two countries since establishing diplomatic relations in 1962.

After his visit to the Dominican Republic, the South Korean prime minister will travel to Brazil to participate in the 8th World Water Forum in Brasilia.

Lee Nak-yeon is seeking to strengthen bilateral relations with the two Latin American countries, as well as to reinforce cooperation on issues such as energy, infrastructure and communication technologies.
