He noted that “Costa Rica and Korea show that distance is not an excuse. Distance is the fastest way to be close and near to work together. I always believe that diplomacy is about sharing and that sharing also means the use of the world together. He said, “When you share together it is easy to find the way to be happy.” Then he said, “Let me share with you five principles: (1) Everything happens for one reason, (2) Life only gives you as much as you can handle, (3) Happiness is a choice, (4) Nothing is permanent and (5) You always have the final say. Then he said: “Once again, thanks to be here, thank you for the very warm welcome you have given me, thanks to my colleague Minister Jairo Lopez for this support and thanks for the Embassy Staff, Ms. Kim, Ms. Lee and Mr. Hong, you are a great team.”
