South Korea's foreign ministry said it plans to hold a ministerial-level talk with France next week, and discuss various issues related to the two countries, including Pyongyang-related topics.

The meeting comes as French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault plans to arrive in Seoul on March 23 for a three-day stay.

"The topics will include bilateral matters, as well as comprehensive issues on the Korean Peninsula and the world, and seek strategic cooperation," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
