President Park Geun-hye arrived in Prague Tuesday for a summit with regional leaders later this week after attending the U.N. climate change summit in France.

Park is scheduled to meet with Czech President Milos Zeman on Wednesday to discuss how to boost bilateral relations on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic ties.

Park also plans to meet with Zeman and their counterparts from Hungary, Poland and Slovakia on Thursday. The four central European countries form the so-called Visegrad Group.

Park plans to hold in-depth discussions with the leaders on South Korean companies' possible participation in major infrastructure projects being pursued by the four countries, according to Cheong Wa Dae, South Korea's presidential office.

Park is also scheduled to hold separate summit talks with her counterparts from Hungary, Poland and Slovakia in Prague.

Prague is the second and last stop on Park's seven-day tour that took her to Paris for the U.N. climate change summit meant to build political momentum for negotiations on a new legally binding deal to cut greenhouse gas emissions. (Yonhap)
