SEOUL, Jan. 17 (Yonhap) -- South Korea and Fiji agreed to expand parliamentary cooperation and exchanges Tuesday.

National Assembly Speaker Chung sye-kyun and his counterpart Jiko Luveni signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to promote human and institutional exchanges, as well as the sharing of documents related to legislative activities, between the two parliaments.

"I hope the MOU will help the two parliaments bolster exchanges and become an opportunity for the South Korean National Assembly to share its know-how and experience," Chung said.

Chung also expressed gratitude to Fiji for its support for South Korea's efforts toward the denuclearization of Pyongyang.

The speaker is currently visiting Fiji to attend the Asia Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF). The two countries established diplomatic relations in 1971.
