South Korean Ambassador to Bangladesh Lee Jang-keun has said Korea, as a natural and trustful partner of Bangladesh, is committed to further contributing to Bangladesh’s path towards brighter future.
Ambassador Lee also drew attention that Korea and Bangladesh will celebrate the 50th anniversary of diplomatic ties in 2023 and hoped this to be a milestone year bringing the bilateral relations to a new height.
