President Lee Myung-bak and Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso will hold a summit Monday at the presidential office in Seoul on sustaining and developing bilateral relations, among other topics.

They will also discuss bringing peace and stability to the Korean Peninsula, including ending North Korea`s nuclear program, cooperate at the regional and international levels, and jointly tackle economic issues.

Aso arrived at Seoul Airport in Gyeonggi Province Sunday for a two-day visit.

He laid flowers at Seoul National Memorial Board in Seoul, attended a luncheon hosted by four leading Korean economic organizations, visited Hanyang University’s Fusion Technology Center, and held talks with representatives from the Korea-Japan Student Future Forum.

After meeting Korean and Japanese business leaders with Aso, President Lee said Sunday at a dinner, “Cooperation between Korea, which represents emerging economies, and Japan, which represents advanced economies, is very important for both the region and the international community.”
