SEOUL, October 24 (Itar-Tass) — South Korean President Lee Myung-bak will visit Russia next week for talks with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev, the South Korean president’s secretariat reported on Monday.
Lee Myung-bak will meet with the Russian leader in St. Petersburg. Afterwards the South Korean president will leave for Cannes, France, to take part in the G-20 summit.
The Russian-South Korean talks will focus on bilateral relations, economic cooperation between the two countries, North Korea’s nuclear problem, and other regional and global issues, the secretariat said.
Lee Myung-bak and Medvedev will also discuss an ambitious project to supply Russian natural gas to South Korea through a pipeline, which is planning to be laid to the South via the DPRK territory. According to local mass media, its implementation would facilitate easing tension on the Korean Peninsula.
The August meeting in Ulan Ude between Medvedev and North Korean leader Kim Jong-il gave a new impetus to the implementation of the project. Kim Jong-il praised plans to lay a gas pipeline.
After the summit the Russian and South Korean presidents will take part in a ceremony of closing the second round of the Russian-Korean Dialogue, a civil forum, which is designed to strengthen friendship, cooperation and trust between the leaders and contribute to partnership between Seoul and Moscow, the secretariat said.
