Korean Ambassador Santhush, whilst thanking all the cultural celebrities for the constant support and encouragement, stated that he looks forward to promoting cultural cooperation between Korea and Sri Lanka. Music and dance have a strong power to connect and heal people during difficult times throughout the world.
