President Lee Myung-bak visited the UNMCK and participated in the remembrance ceremony on June 18, 2010.
It was the first visit for an incumbent Korean president since ex-president Park Jung-hee visited forty-four years ago.
President Lee observed a moment of silence to honor the fallen soldiers. He paid tribute to a Turkish interred, Mustafa DUZGUN as well as the youngest Australian interred, J P DAUNT, and those who fell of Gapyeong battle. Following, he laid a wreath on the grave of the hero of the day, British interred, G.W.A. HOWARD among who fell on June 18.
The ceremony for the commemoration planting was cancelled owing to bad weather. President Lee's commemoration planting was planted across from the Turkish President's.
