Seoul's Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that Special Representative for Korean Peninsula Peace and Security Affairs Lee Do-hoon will visit Belgium on Wednesday and Thursday.
During his stay in Brussels, Lee will visit EU headquarters to meet with members of the EU Political and Security Committee. He plans to hold talks with Helga Schmid, the secretary general of the European External Action Service.
Lee will exchange opinions with the officials on the Korean Peninsula situation and Seoul's North Korea policy.
