Zagreb - Croatian Parliament Speaker Josip Leko, who is on an official visit to South Korea, on Monday met with his Korean counterpart Chung Ui-hwa for talks on strengthening bilateral relations, notably on the economic front, with the South Korean official saying that the opening of a Croatian embassy in Seoul would be conducive to that goal.

The South Korean National Assembly Speaker expressed satisfaction with a rise in the number of Korean tourists visiting Croatia, pointing out the importance of personal contacts in strengthening trade and investment, according to a press release from the Croatian Sabor. In that context, Chung Ui-hwa advocated the opening of Croatia's embassy in Seoul.
