Two African presidents to visit Korea

By Kim Tae-gyu

Two African state leaders will make back-to-back visits to Seoul late this month and early next month to have summits with President Park Geun-hye, Cheong Wa Dae said on Thursday.

They are Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni and Mozambique's President Armando Guebuza, who will be the first foreign state heads to visit Park since her inauguration on Feb. 25.

The news came in the midst of Park's commitment to mutually-beneficial cooperation with less-developed countries in such places as Africa.

Included in the major agendas for the meetings are how to boost bilateral trade and investment as well as cooperation in energy and raw materials.

Museveni will arrive on May 29 for a three-day visit. He is known to be interested in Korea's New Village Movement, which helped the country chalk up fast economic growth in the 1970s. Park's father, authoritarian leader Park Chung-hee, spearheaded that campaign.

Guebuza will make a four-day visit starting on June 3. He will pay a visit to Korea Gas Corp.'s liquefied petroleum gas (LNG) terminal in Incheon as well as the city's business district.
