SEOUL – Foreign Minster of the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) Mohamed Siala, and South Korea’s Foreign Minister, Kang Kyung-wha are scheduled for a meeting in Seoul next Monday, according to a statement by the South Korean Foreign Ministry.

Siala is scheduled to embark on a three-day trip to Seoul on Sunday.

Both diplomats plan to exchange views on major pending bilateral issues, regional security conditions and how to expand substantive cooperation between the two sides.

Kyung-wha will also ask the Libyan authorities to step up efforts for the release of a South Korean man taken hostage in the North African country, a ministry official told reporters.

The South Korean man and three Filipino engineers were kidnapped in an attack by armed insurgents on a water project site in western Libya in July last year.
