South Korean MP and Spokesman of the ruling Saenuri Party, Kim Tae Hum said they want to cooperate regarding investment opportunities with Turkey during his visit to Ankara.
Kim and the accompanying delegation from the South Korean parliament attended the commemoration ceremony with the Turkish War Veterans Association in the Korean War Veterans Park on Thursday.
Korean MP underlined "We are blood brothers because of the Korean War. Although we are in the different corners of the world as the west and east, we are ally states," saying they would like to cooperate with Turkey on every field especially on construction and technology by means of the free trade agreement.
Underlining the importance of Turkish-South Korean trade relations, Kim said, "We support Turkey since it has potential for further growth," adding they held talks with the Foreign Relations Committee of the Turkish Grand National Assembly and Korean-Turkish Friendship Group on future partnership.
When asked on OECD's report indicating South Korea as a development model, he said, "Unfortunately Korea had a bitter war period between the South and North, and was able to develop thanks to the support of countries like Turkey. Since we have been successful at re-development, we would like to share this experience with other countries such as the third world countries."
Among the participants of the program, Turkish War Veterans Association President veteran Colonel Mehmet Sukru Tandogan stated that there were 4,300 Turkish war veterans still alive since the Korean War in 1950. One of the veterans, who attended the ceremony, showed photographs from the war times, drawing the attention of Kim and many attendees.
