President Moon Jae-in reaffirmed South Korea's commitment Thursday to continued cooperation with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the international community against COVID-19.

He was replying to a Twitter message by WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus regarding Seoul's "effective" handling of the pandemic.

Moon thanked him for speaking highly of what South Korea has done so far.

"Korea's response has been relatively successful thanks to our people who have turned themselves into the main actors in disease prevention efforts," Moon tweeted. "We will continue to work with WHO and the international community to overcome the pandemic."

Earlier this week, the WHO leader posted a rare tweet in Korean, which read South Korea's response has demonstrated that the solidarity and observance of verified public health measures can control the coronavirus effectively. (Yonhap)
