New Delhi, Feb 14: At the invitation of President of Republic of Korea, Moon Jae-in, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will pay a two-day state visit to that country and give a new momentum in high-level exchanges between two countries.

During his visit, Mr Modi will be also honoured with Seoul Peace Prize.

According to an official release, India and Korea share good ties and this got further boost during the visit of President Moon to India for Bilateral Summit in July 2018 and the participation of the Korean First Lady Her Excellency Madame Kim Jung-sook at the Deepotsav event in Ayodhya in November 2018.

Prime Minister Modi’s forthcoming visit will provide an "important occasion" for the two leaders to review the recent developments in bilateral relations, the release said here on Thursday.

The forthcoming visit will further demonstrate the priority New Delhi attaches to deepening multi-dimensional engagement with Korea as part of India'a 'Act East Policy.'

During the visit, Prime Minister will also be conferred upon with the 2018 Seoul Peace Prize at a ceremony to be organised by the Seoul Peace Prize Cultural Foundation on February 22, in recognition of his national and international contributions, the release said. (UNI)
