President Moon Jae-in and Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-o-cha on Monday signed an intelligence-sharing pact in Bangkok.
After the summit, Moon said, "I'm happy to have signed the pact with Thailand since the two countries will have stronger cooperation in defense."
Cheong Wa Dae recently decided to not to renew a similar agreement with Japan amid a spat with the neighboring country.
Moon added he looks forward to meeting Prayuth again in his hometown of Busan during a special summit of ASEAN leaders in November.
In an earlier interview, Moon said, "It would be a very meaningful occasion for peace on the Korean Peninsula and in East Asia, if [North Korean leader Kim Jong-un] is given the chance to join the gathering with 10 leaders from ASEAN countries."
