Korean voters went to the polls today and elected Kim Young Sam to succeed President Roh Tae Woo.

The President has sent his personal congratulations and those of the American people to President-elect Kim Young Sam.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our respect and admiration for the many accomplishments of President Roh. We wish President Roh well and look forward to working closely with President-elect Kim Young Sam.
