First Visit of the Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol in France

The South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol visited France from June 20th to 21st to expand bilateral cooperation and support Busan in its bid to host the 2030 World Expo. He called on France to support this project during the general assembly of the Bureau International des Expositions, based in Paris.

The two head of State specifically mentioned cooperation within the framework of the United Nations on North Korean threats, as South Korea, recently elected as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council from 2024 to 2025, plans to work closely with France, one of the five permanent members.   

In the economic domain, strengthening bilateral partnership was also one of the cornerstones of the visit, especially regarding space, aerospace and defense industries.
