Prime Minister Narendra Modi will pay a two-day state visit to South Korea on February 21-22 during which  he will hold talks with President Moon Jae-in on ways of further strengthening and enhancing bilateral ties.
A press release from the Ministry of External Affairs said the visit is part of the new momentum in high-level exchanges between the two countries which included the visit of President Moon to India for a bilateral summit in July 2018 and the participation of Korean First Lady Kim Jung-sook at the Deepotsav event in Ayodhya in November 2018.
The release said the visit would provide an important occasion for the two leaders to review the recent developments in bilateral relations and exchange views on regional and international issues of common interest with the objective of further strengthening the Special Strategic Partnership between the two countries based on shared values and interests. 
"The visit will further demonstrate the priority we attach to deepening multi-dimensional engagement with ROK as part of our 'Act East Policy'," it said.
During the visit, Prime Minister will also be conferred upon with the 2018 Seoul Peace Prize at a ceremony to be organised by the Seoul Peace Prize Cultural Foundation on February 22, in recognition of his national and international contributions, the release added.
