Russia expects the active participation of South Korea in the implementation of economic agreements

The Russian Ambassador to South Korea Konstantin Vnukov, speaking at a reception on the occasion of the Day of Russia at his residence in Seoul, called on the South Korean government to implement the agreements reached during last year’s summit, reports IA RUSCOR.

"The agreements include a trilateral economic project with the participation of North Korea," Vnukov explained. "We expect a strong reaction from our South Korean friends, some of whom are present here."

In November, President Pak and Russian leader Putin signed a memorandum of understanding providing for the participation of South Korean companies in the Rajin-Hasan logistics project. During the talks, the two leaders also agreed to encourage South Korean companies investing in Russia and established a visa-free regime between the countries.

After the speech of the Russian ambassador, the Speaker of the National Assembly Chung Yu Hwa called on Russia to pay special attention to the descendants of ethnic Koreans residing in the country.
