Our top story and "In the Spotlight" this evening
we delve into what's on the agenda for President Park Geun-hye during her upcoming visits to the Netherlands and Germany.
During her week-long trip, the Korean president will attend the 2014 Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague, and then make a state visit to Germany.
For details, we now connect to our presidential office correspondent Choi You-sun at our news center.
You-sun, what does President Park have in mind leaving for Europe this time around?
Hi Conn-young, Daniel.
Security and inter-Korean reunification are expected to be the two main themes of President Park's upcoming two-nation tour.
At her first stop in The Hague, President Park, as the host of the most recent Nuclear Security Summit in 2012, will give an opening speech alongside UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
This year's conference, the third of its kind, will look at how much each participating nation has followed up on its nuclear reduction and security pledges, and discuss cooperation measures to sustain the level of nuclear security.
In her address, the Korean president will emphasize that every member of the international community is responsible for preventing nuclear terrorism.
President Park will be the first Korean president to visit the Netherlands and will hold summit talks with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
They are expected to focus on boosting cooperation in the areas of energy, science and technology and nuclear power.
