Togo's President Meets South Korean Counterpart in Seoul

(Togo First) - Togo's President Faure Gnassingbé met with South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol on June 3 at the Presidential Palace in Seoul. The meeting took place on the sidelines of the Africa-Korea summit, which began today, June 4.

The two leaders discussed bilateral cooperation between Togo and Korea, as well as issues of common interest. They reviewed mechanisms for strengthening ties in priority sectors, including education, science and technology, engineering, mathematics, health, infrastructure, and food self-sufficiency.

Togo's President reiterated his country's desire to draw inspiration from the Korean development model, aiming to transition from a poor country to one that provides aid, with a focus on industrial production.

The two nations have enjoyed good relations for six decades, with recent strengthening through visits by Togolese Foreign Minister Robert Dussey to Seoul and Korean Prime Minister Han Duck-soo to Lomé.

On international issues, the two leaders discussed peace and security, including terrorism and violent extremism in the West African sub-region.

The Africa-Korea Summit, themed "The Future We Build Together: Shared Growth, Sustainability and Solidarity," brings together delegations from 48 African countries.
