South Korean President Lee Myung-bak will convene a new monthly meeting designed to assess security and diplomatic situations starting early this year, Lee's office Cheong Wa Dae said Wednesday.

Lee will preside over the meeting focused on foreign affairs and national security once a month, Cheong Wa Dae spokeswoman Kim Hee-jung told reporters in a press briefing, without divulging further details.

The move comes amid lingering security threats posed by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), following its alleged sinking of a South Korean warship in March and exchange of artillery fire between South Korea and the DPRK near a disputed border island last November.
