Roh Moo-hyun: He is scheduled to attend a reception and meet with Adm. Fargo

South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun will visit Hawaii later this month on his return from an economic summit in South America.

He is scheduled to arrive at Hickam Air Force Base just before midnight Nov. 21 and depart for Seoul the following afternoon.

During his stay, the South Korean president will have a courtesy visit with Adm. Thomas Fargo, commander of U.S. Pacific forces, and attend a reception for Korean-American leaders. His wife, first lady Kwon Yang-suk, is scheduled to visit McCully Library. Last year was the 100th anniversary of Korean immigration to Hawaii.

Roh's visit follows his participation in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation leaders meeting in Santiago, Chile. Other members of APEC include China, Japan, Mexico, Russia and the United States.
