South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa held a summit in Seoul today to discuss ways to strengthen economic and other cooperation between the two countries.

During today's summit, Lee said Sri Lanka's economy has grown steadily and its political situation stabilized due to Rajapaksa's leadership.

President Lee also thanked Sri Lanka for sending a pair of elephants two years ago as a token of friendship between the two countries.

During the discussions it was noted that more than 20,000 Sri Lankan workers are contributing to the economy of South Korea and they are beloved by South Korean businessmen.

The two countries also agreed to seek a project to share South Korea's economic development experience.

President Rajapaksa arrived in Seoul yesterday for a four-day state visit that also includes a luncheon with major South Korean business lobbies, visits to a waste disposal facility and a nuclear power plant, and a forum of business leaders of the two countries.
