OTTAWA — South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol is due to visit Canada next week to hold trade and security talks with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Mr. Youn will travel to Toronto and Ottawa on September 22nd and 23rd. According to the Federal Prime Minister, this is President Yoon’s first bilateral visit abroad since his election in March 2022.
According to the statement released by the cabinet on Saturday, Mr Trudeau will meet the South Korean president in Ottawa.
The aim of the visit is to strengthen trade ties between the two countries through even closer cooperation in the energy sector, including batteries for electric vehicles, critical minerals and new technologies. They also plan to talk about supply chains.
The two leaders intend to continue their cooperation on various regional security issues on the Korean Peninsula, including Operation NEON, which aims to monitor and deter North Korea’s maritime activities.
The two countries could also take the opportunity to “reaffirm their condemnation of Russia’s illegal and unjustified invasion of Ukraine, jointly support the Ukrainian people and reaffirm their commitment to protecting the rule of law.”
