President Michel congratulates first female President of Korea


President Michel congratulated the President-elect on her landmark victory which has made her Korea’s first female President.

“Ushered in as the sixth President under the progressive Sixth Republic, we have no doubt that Korea will continue to flourish under your able stewardship. Moreover, your appointment as the first female President in the history of your nation is a significant moment, illustrative of your country’s commitment to maintaining a representative democracy.”

In his congratulatory letter, President Michel also remarked on the good ties that exist between Seychelles and Korea, particularly in recent years with the conclusion of the first joint commission between the two states, and Seychelles’ involvement in the Yeosu Expo 2012.

“I am optimistic that under your leadership, Seychelles and Korea will continue to discover new areas for fruitful cooperation, and look forward to raising our partnership to new heights as we work hand in hand for the mutual benefit of our peoples.”

The President concluded by wishing the President-elect Park Geun-hye every success in her tenure.
