Secretary Pompeo on Republic of Korea Chuseok Holiday

Washington, DC
September 20, 2018

On behalf of the Government of the United States of America and the American people, I would like to wish the Korean people a very warm Chuseok holiday. During this time for homecoming and family gatherings, good food, and friendly gifts, we join you in giving thanks for the many blessings of this life and connecting with loved ones.

On this day of reflection, thanksgiving, and family, we are reminded of the strength of the U.S.-Republic of Korea Alliance that is based on our shared values of democracy and human rights and shared interests of security and economic prosperity.

I wish everyone in Korea the best on this Chuseok holiday.
