Seoul — The Angolan extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassador Albano Malungo attended on Monday in Seoul the inauguration act of Park Geun-Hye as the first female president of South Korea.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by about 70.000 people.
Park, 61, was elected on 19 December as South Korea's first female president. Her biggest foreign policy challenge will be to end five years of deteriorating ties with the North under her predecessor and fellow conservative, Lee Myung-bak, and persuade it to return to negotiations.
She indicated that she could adopt a softer stance if the North, under its young leader, Kim Jong-un, was willing to make concessions.
