SEOUL, April 5 (Yonhap) -- South Korea and the International Atomic Energy Agency will hold high-level talks this week to coordinate their response to North Korea's nuclear threats and help improve nuclear safety, Seoul's Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.

The two sides will meet in Seoul on Thursday for their fourth round of high-level consultations aimed at strengthening cooperation on nuclear issues, such as nonproliferation, safety measures and the peaceful use of nuclear energy, the ministry said in a press release.

The meeting also comes ahead of Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se's planned assumption of the chairmanship of the IAEA ministerial meeting on nuclear security in December.

The talks will be led by Choi Jong-moon, South Korea's deputy foreign minister for multilateral and global affairs, and Tero Varjoranta, head of the IAEA's department of safeguards.
