BUSAN, Nov. 26 (Yonhap) -- South Korea and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) will lay out a vision for their future partnerships on Tuesday, wrapping up a two-day special summit here.
President Moon Jae-in and the leaders of 10 Southeast Asian countries are scheduled to hold two sub-sessions at the ASEAN-Republic of Korea Commemorative Summit throughout the day and issue a statement summing up the results of their discussions.
In the document, they will review bilateral ties over the past three decades and map out a framework for closer cooperation going forward.
It is also to include the Moon administration's commitment to the New Southern Policy.
