South Korean President Park Geun-hye arrived in Kuwait on Sunday for a three-day visit during which she will be holding talks with His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.

She was greeted upon her arrival by head of the accompanying mission of honour, Amiri Diwan Advisor Yousef Al-Ibraheem.

The South Korean president is being accompanied by Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se and Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy Yoon Sang-jick.

Earlier, the Ambassador to Kuwait Shin Bonam said that the president's talks with His Highness the Amir would witness the signature of three agreements on a mutual visa waiver for diplomatic, official and special passport holders, on cooperation in healthcare and on land transport.

Other topics on the agenda are to include enhancing mutual cooperation in sectors such as security, renewable energy, railway, health, medical sciences, solar energy and infrastructure, he told KUNA.

Park's visit is part of a nine-day, four-nation trip to the Middle East expected to focus on wide-ranging economic cooperation beyond energy and construction, according to Yonhap News Agency. Her visit will also see her make stops at Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar.
