SEOUL, March 2 (Yonhap) -- A South Korean special presidential envoy has attended the inauguration ceremony for Uruguay's new President Luis Lacalle Pou in Montevideo, Seoul's foreign ministry said Monday.

On Sunday, Park Myung-kwang, a former lawmaker and current head of the nongovernmental organization Global Civic Sharing, joined the event and delivered President Moon Jae-in's personal letter hoping for expanded "practical" bilateral cooperation in various sectors, the ministry said.
