SEOUL, Oct. 13 (Yonhap) -- South Korean President Park Geun-hye will meet with overseas members of her advisory panel on unification Thursday to discuss an array of North Korea-related issues, her office Cheong Wa Dae said.

At Cheong Wa Dae, Park will host a gathering of some 530 advisers to the National Unification Advisory Council (NUAC), who have gathered in Seoul from 92 countries in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Russia and Central Asia to attend the council's ongoing general session.

During the meeting, Park is to receive a briefing about the activities of the advisory panel to criticize the communist state's latest nuclear test and persistent missile provocations, and shine a light on its woeful human rights record, Cheong Wa Dae said.

Earlier this year, Park met with other NUAC advisers from the United States, Japan, China, Canada, and Central and Latin America.

The NUAC is a presidential panel that makes proposals and recommendations to the president regarding the formulation and execution of policies to promote peaceful unification.
