At an interactive session at Foreign Correspondents Club of South Asia here, Korean envoy Shin Bong-kil said President Moon's state visit between July 8 and 11 was a "milestone" in re-energising the ties between the two countries.
"Our president was warmly received in India. He was very happy to establish a personal bonding...with Prime Minister Modi. I was moved (after) seeing pictures in the press of the president's visit to various places in the city," he said.
On July 10, the two sides signed 10 agreements covering a broad spectrum of sectors, including infrastructure, trade, railways, artificial intelligence, big data and anti-dumping.
