1. Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano will visit the Republic of Korea from September 28 to 30, and meet with Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha to discuss the North Korean nuclear issue, and ways for the ROK and the IAEA to work together.

2. Director General Amano’s visit to the ROK, which will come amid North Korea’s continued provocations following the sixth nuclear test, is expected to become an opportunity to discuss in depth ways for the two sides to cooperate to solve the North Korean nuclear problem.
