Korea, Denmark to hold summit

The leaders of South Korea and Denmark will hold a summit in Seoul on Tuesday to discuss bilateral cooperation on a range of regional and global issues, the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said.

President Park Geun-hye and Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen will exchange their views on cooperation in trade, investment, electronic governance and renewable energy, among other topics, Cheong Wa Dae said.

The leaders will also discuss their collaboration in addressing North Korea-related issues and responding to climate change, officials said.

Following their summit, the two leaders will oversee the signing of some memorandums of understanding over bilateral cooperation.

Park and Rasmussen have so far met each other five times at official meetings and brief talks, including the latest encounter on the sidelines of a UN climate change gathering in Paris last year.

Bilateral trade reached $2.4 billion last year with South Korea exporting such items as ships, cars and synthetic resins from the Northern European country and importing medicine, livestock products, machinery and other items. (Yonhap)
