Park to host summit with Southeast Asian leaders in Dec.

 President Park Geun-hye will hold summit talks with leaders of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in South Korea's second-largest city of Busan late this year, her office said Tuesday.
South Korea plans to further boost a strategic partnership with ASEAN through the special summit set for Dec. 11-12, the presidential office said.
The planned summit is designed to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of dialogue between South Korea and ASEAN, said presidential spokesman Min Kyung-wook.
In October, Park met with ASEAN leaders in Brunei.
South Korea and ASEAN have made strides in their ties since 1989, when they established dialogue.
South Korea forged a free trade deal with ASEAN in 2009 and upgraded their relations to a strategic partnership in 2010.
ASEAN is South Korea's No. 2 investment destination and second-largest trade partner, with two-way trade amounting to $135 billion last year.
ASEAN comprises Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore and Vietnam. (Yonhap)
