Korean Minister of National Defence Suh Wook on Friday inaugurated the Indo-Korean Bilateral Friendship Park in Delhi Cantonment to commemorate the contribution of Indian peacekeepers during the Korean War in 1950-53.

The inauguration of the friendship park is a testament to the strong relations between the two countries. 

During his visit, Wook will meet his Indian counterpart Rajnath Singh and discuss further strengthening of the bilateral defence cooperation between the two counties.

On March 26, the visiting minister is scheduled to visit Agra to witness the operational capabilities of the Parachute Brigade. 

"He will also visit and interact with personnel of 60 Para Field Hospital, which was actively involved in providing medical aid to United Nations and South Korean personnel during the Korean War," an official statement said.

India's role in the Korean War

With having no specific geopolitical interests in the Korean Peninsula and maintaining a neutral position before and during the war years, New Delhi had played a significant role during the Korean War for the reunification of the peninsula. 

At the United Nations, India took a position of finding a solution to the pressing issue of the future of the prisoners of war.
