MANILA -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in is set to meet Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev later Tuesday, the South Korean presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said, for talks that will likely focus on ways to improve the countries' bilateral relationship and end North Korea's nuclear ambition.

The discussion will be held on the sidelines of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations forum in Manila. The South Korean president arrived here Sunday following his trips to Indonesia and Vietnam.


The Moon-Medvedev meeting will mark the first of its kind since Moon took office in May.

It comes about two months after Moon and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin held a summit meeting on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, Russia, in September. (Yonhap)
