Qureshi expressed his wish for a more active exchange between Pakistan and Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism as he reminded the fact that Pakistan is not only the origin of Gandhara style Buddhist art but also is a destination described in the “Memoir of the pilgrimage to the five kingdoms of India“ written by Ven. Hyecho from Silla.
