Romania seeks to build up relations with South Korea
South Korea and Romania said Tuesday that they plan to expand their economic and cultural ties as Romanian Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi visited the East Asian country, DPA reported.
Baconschi and his South Korean counterpart, Yu Myung Hwan, discussed how to promote their relations through more trade, investment and cultural exchanges and signed an action plan to achieve that goal, the Foreign Ministry in Seoul said.
Baconschi's visit marked two decades of relations between the two countries and also prompted his country and South Korea to pledge to expand their cooperation in energy and infrastructure projects.
The South Korean Foreign Ministry also said both countries planned to speed up talks on removing visa requirements for one another's citizens to promote the investments and exchanges the two diplomats discussed.
Baconschi arrived Monday in Seoul for a three-day visit.
