U.S. Embassy Marks 60 Years of Partnership and Shared Prosperity

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.  Stay tuned to the Embassy SNS accounts (@usembassyseoul) and website for upcoming 60th anniversary events.
