They will exchange their views on geopolitical issues, too, such as North Korea, the Korean Peninsula and Europe, along with other global issues. During their scheduled talks, the two leaders will discuss measures to expand mutually beneficial cooperation in the medical and healthcare industries, including on “bio-health,” industrial IT and support for startups.
