Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan and his Armenian counterpart Edward Nalbandian, who arrived in Seoul on Wednesday for a two-day visit, also signed a visa-free agreement for diplomats and government officials.
During the talks, Kim and Nalbandian exchanged a wide range of views on other matters of mutual concern, including the situation on the Korean Peninsula and in the Caucasus, the ministry said in a statement.
It was the first time in 13 years an Armenian foreign minister has visited South Korea, officials said.
The visit by Nalbandian will “serve as a significant opportunity to review the bilateral relationship during the past 20 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations, and to discuss ways to further develop ties,” a ministry official said.
This year, South Korea and Armenia mark the 20th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations. (Yonhap News)
