The Uttar Pradesh government has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with South Korea on to enhance cooperation in the field of tourism, skill development, culture and farming.
It was signed after a delegation from South Korea’s Gimhae city met Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in Lucknow and discussed ways to improve cooperation between the two countries.
The MoU will go a long way in cementing the bond especially cultural and historical relations between Uttar Pradesh and South Korea. Earlier, in 2000, an agreement was signed to develop Ayodhya and Gimhae as sister cities, following which memorial was constructed in Ayodhya which is visited by large number of tourists from South Korea every year. The people in South Korea believe that 2,000 years ago, Ayodhya princess had married Korean King Kim Suro. At present, members of the ‘Crock Clan’ are considered as their descendants.
