President Yoon Suk-yeol will visit the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh for the ASEAN Summit and Bali, Indonesia for the G20 Summit this weekend, the presidential office said Wednesday.
This is Yoon's first visit to Southeast Asia.
National Security Adviser Kim Sung-han told reporters that Yoon will announce his vision and strategies to strengthen alliance between Korea and the ASEAN countries with the focus on freedom, peace and prosperity.
He will also attend the ASEAN Plus Three Summit on Saturday and East Asia Summit on Sunday, where he will call for a coordinated international response to North Korea's repeated provocations.
Then he heads to Bali for the G20 Summit on Nov. 15 and 16 and attends a business forum on the sidelines.
He is expected to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping there. A high-ranking official at the presidential office said, "We believe there will be a chance for a brief meeting."
The presidential office also said it is in talks to arrange a meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden and a three-way summit with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, but nothing has been decided.
