President Moon Jae-in says efforts must continue to further develop South Korea's democracy.

Moon made the comment Monday after visiting a national cemetery in Seoul as the country commemorated its historic pro-democracy movement six decades ago.

The president paid tribute to the victims of the April 19 Revolution in 1960, which was led by students protesting vote-rigging in presidential elections by then President Rhee Syngman.

According to official data, 183 people were killed and 6,259 others were wounded in a brutal police crackdown.

Moon wrote on his social media accounts that the movement has served as the "solid root of democracy" here.
