South Korean Defense Minister Kim Kwan-jin and his Mongolian counterpart Luvsanvandan Bold are also scheduled to discuss regional security issues including North Korean provocations such as the sinking of the corvette Cheonan last year, officials said.
The Mongolian defense chief is to arrive here Wednesday for a five-day visit.
During his stay, Bold is scheduled to visit key security sites such as the inter-Korean border village of Panmunjeom and the Navy’s Second Fleet Command in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province, where the wreckage of the Cheonan is displayed.
It is the first time since October 2007 for a Mongolian defense chief to visit Seoul. Bold, who is also a third-term lawmaker, made unofficial visits to South Korea twice in 2008 and 2009.
