The South African government has expressed its sincere condolences to the South Korean Nation following the death of former President Roh Moo-hyun. Moo-hyun served as President of the Republic of Korea from 2003-2008.
“The thoughts and prayers of President Jacob Zuma, the government and the people of South Africa are with the Korean nation during this time of mourning,” she said.
Foreign Affairs’ Nomfanelo Kota says that South Africa’s bilateral relations with the Republic of Korea expanded remarkably during the time Moo-hyun served as president.
