Moon to meet Slovak president

- By Kim Rahn

Slovak President Andrej Kiska will visit Korea from April 9 to 11 and have bilateral talks with President Moon Jae-in, Cheong Wa Dae said Tuesday.

It will be the first official visit by a Slovak president. This year marks the 25th year of diplomatic ties between the two nations.

He earlier had an unofficial visit here in February to attend the opening ceremony of the PyeongChan­g Winter Olympics.

Moon and Kiska will have a summit April 10, where they will review the 25 years of relations and discuss ways to expand economic cooperatio­n and their diplomatic partnershi­p.

About 90 Korean companies are operating in Slovakia including Kia Motors and Samsung Electronic­s.

Slovakia is a member of Visegrad Group, a regional alliance of four Central European nations — Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary — and Kiska’s visit is expected to help South Korea reinforce cooperatio­n with those countries.
