The mayor of Porto, Rui Moreira, received on Wednesday the ambassador of the Republic of Korea in Portugal, Cho Yeong-moo, in a greetings presentation session.

The reception took place in the Room D. Maria II, in the building of the Town Hall, and follows the presentation of credentials to the President of the Republic, in the Belém Palace, in April.

Cho Yeong-moo took over as the Republic of Korea's ambassador in Portugal in April this year. An Official of the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs since May 1995, he has been a member of his country's diplomatic representations in Austria, Ethiopia, Thailand, Iraq and Qatar. He was also part of South Korea's permanent mission to the United Nations in New York, USA.

The Mayor of Porto and the South Korean diplomat exchanged gifts and visited the exhibition “1941: Guggenheim and Fleming, Artists & Spies in WWII Portugal”, displayed in the Town Hall atrium, which gathers more than 100 documents, photographs and unpublished videos of spies and refugee artists in Portugal in World War II.
