U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Harry Harris will leave office next week in line with the change in leadership in Washington.

Harris, who took office in July 2018, will stay in the post until next Wednesday, according to his spokesman.

In an impassioned message to Korean citizens this afternoon, Harris stressed that relations between Seoul and Washington remain "ironclad."

"We are friends, partners, allies and family. We have come a long way, and to the future, we go together," he added.

He also praised South Korea for its response to COVID-19, saying the dedication of the Korean people to beat the disease "was an inspiration to all."

Rob Rapson, the deputy chief of mission, will serve as Charge d'Affaires ad interim until a new envoy arrives.
