The U.S. Embassy in Gwanghwamun has launched a year-long celebration of close U.S.-Korea relations with an 18-meter banner emblazoned with the words “60 Years of Partnership and Shared Prosperity.” The year 2013 marks the 60th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice, the U.S. – ROK Mutual Defense Treaty and the launch of the American Chamber of Commerce in Korea among other key events. Starting the New Year, U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Korea Sung Kim said, “We have come a long way together during the past 60 years to create a relationship that is both deep and broad. It encompasses not only our mutual security but vibrant trade and economic cooperation, active coordination to deal with regional and global issues, and close people-to-people ties. Working together our partnership and our shared future is limitless.”
The banner was hung on January 15th and ready for public viewing from Gwanghwamun Square beginning January 16th.
President Obama will welcome President Park Geun-hye of the Republic of Korea to the White House on May 7. As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the U.S.-ROK alliance this year, President Park’s visit will highlight the growth, breadth, depth and strength of our alliance, our increased global cooperation, the deep economic ties between the United States and the Republic of Korea, and the strong bonds of friendship between the American and Korean people.
