SEOUL, July 3 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will renew a cooperation agreement with Indonesia this week to help the Southeast Asian nation fight corruption, officials said Tuesday.

The two countries first signed the memorandum of understanding on anti-corruption cooperation in 2006 between then South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun and Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Under the agreement that has since been renewed three times, South Korea has shared its anti-corruption know-how with Indonesia, and the deal will be renewed for the fourth time this week, the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission said.

The commission's vice chairman, Lee Kun-ree, is scheduled to sign an agreement to renew the anti-corruption MOU for three years when he visits Indonesia's corruption prevention committee on Wednesday, the commission said.

Under the agreement, the commission plans to invite Indonesian officials to South Korea for seminars and training sessions and offer consulting services to help implement anti-corruption measures formulated with the commission's help.

After Indonesia, Lee plans to visit Hanoi for meetings with Vietnamese officials where he will brief them about South Korea's anti-corruption measures, the commission said.
