PM Narendra Modi, On Visit To South Korea, Awarded Seoul Peace Prize

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today received the Seoul Peace Prize from the South Korean government in recognition of his service to international cooperation, global growth and human development.

"I am honoured to be awarded the Seoul Peace Prize. I believe that this award belongs not to me personally, but to the people of India. The award belongs to the success India has seen in less than five years, powered by 1.5 billion people," PM Modi said after taking the award.

The PM arrived in Seoul on Thursday in his second visit to the Asian nation after his state visit in May 2015.
