Korean Ambassador in Athens Praises Greece for having Established Excellent Bilateral Relations

The sacrifice of Greeks during the 1950 Korean War set the cornerstone for developing excellent bilateral relations, noted the Ambassador of the Korean Republic in Athens Tae-shin JANG during the commemoration ceremony that took place for the 62-year-anniversary of the Korean War in the Greek capital.
The Korean Republic has not forgotten the participation of Greece on its side during the 1950-1955 war leaving behind 186 dead and more than 600 injured people. Every official Korean Embassy wishes to remind Greece of its gratitude for its support at any opportunity.  This commemoration will also set the basis for establishing a solid foundation for excellent political and trade relations between the two countries.
In Seoul there is a monument dedicated to Greeks who lost their lives defending freedom, democracy and human rights, stated General and head of the Hellenic National Defense General Staff Michael Kostarakos. He is the first Special Forces head ever to commemorate this anniversary says Stylianos J. Drakos president of the Panhellenic Association of Korean War Veterans.
General Kostarakos has a more intimate reason to attend the ceremony, as his father Lieutenant Demetres Kostarakos took part in the Korean War.
To express its gratitude to Greece and boost the relations between the two peoples, the Korean government annually offers 20 scholarships and invites the children of seven Greek veterans to spend time in the Peace Camp for Youth, under the auspices of the United Nations.
