The new building was inaugurated following a meeting between Yildirim and Chung Sye-kyun, South Korea’s National Assembly speaker.
Yildirim was accompanied by his wife, Semiha Yildirim and Kim Seol, the South Korean child actor who plays in the movie Ayla, which is also the Turkish candidate for foreign-language Oscar nominee.
Turkey’s Science, Industry and Technology Minister Faruk Ozlu, Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci, and Energy and Natural Sources Minister Berat Albayrak were also present at the inauguration ceremony.
