SEOUL, March 3 (Yonhap) -- President Park Geun-hye met with her visiting Egyptian counterpart, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, on Thursday to discuss bilateral ties, Cheong Wa Dae said

The meeting will be an opportunity for the two countries to expand their bilateral ties to the next level and increase cooperation on regional and global issues, the South Korean presidential office said before the meeting.

Egypt's president arrived in South Korea on Wednesday for a three-day visit that also includes talks with Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn.

It marks the first visit by an Egyptian president since 1999, when former President Hosni Mubarak came to Seoul.

In 2014, Park met with El-Sissi in New York on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly. At the summit, Park expressed her commitment to expanding economic cooperation with Egypt.
