SEOUL, Nov. 9 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will host an online workshop, along with the United States and Indonesia, on aviation security for experts from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) this month, Seoul's foreign ministry said Tuesday.

The ASEAN Workshop Series on Aviation Security in the Time of COVID-19 is co-organized by South Korea's foreign ministry, the U.S. State Department and Indonesia's counter-terrorism agency to expand aviation cooperation between the three parties.

The first series of the workshop is on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the second will be held for two days next week to share expert knowledge on aviation security for joint efforts in counter-terrorism and cargo threats, the ministry said.

The seminar series are part of broader efforts to align Seoul's New Southern Policy in Southeast Asia and Washington's Indo-Pacific strategy, which was discussed during the summit of the allies in May, it noted.
