The Prime Min­is­ter was called on by newly ap­pointed Am­bas­sadors of Korea and Nor­way at the Gya- ly­ong Tshogkhang last Tues­day.

Af­ter an ex­change of pleas­antries, Ly­onch­hen con­grat­u­lated the am­bas­sadors for hav­ing pre­sented their cre­den­tials to His Majesty the King at Tashich­hod­zong ear­lier in the day.

Meet­ing H.E. Mr. Ahn Seong-Doo, Am­bas­sador of the Re­pub­lic of Korea to Bhutan, Ly­onch­hen con­veyed that Bhutan’s re­la­tion­ship with Korea has flour­ished over the last 30 years. He said that such re­la­tions are and will be trea­sured for all times to come. Ly­onch­hen and Am­bas­sador Seong-Doo also shared sim­i­lar sen­ti­ments on the co­he­sive­ness of cul­tural val­ues cher­ished by the two coun­tries.

Thank­ing the Am­bas­sador, Ly­onch­hen said that Korean govern­ment’s as­sis­tance, par­tic­u­larly in the film in­dus­try is well re­ceived by the peo­ple. He fur­ther added that Bhutan could draw a lot of in­spi­ra­tion from Korea’s progress and de­vel­op­ment.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, the two lead­ers ex­pressed con­fi­dence on the long-stand­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween Bhutan and Nor­way. They agreed that ex­pe­dit­ing closer co­op­er­a­tion in mu­tual ar­eas of in­ter­ests would only re­in­force the al­ready ex­ist­ing ex­cel­lent ties.
