South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and Dominique Strauss-Kahn, managing director of International Monetary Fund (IMF), met Thursday for talks on the upcoming G20 summit.

Lee called for the IMF's cooperation in helping countries work on major economic agenda of the summit meeting among the world's 20 major economies, slated for Nov. 11-12 in Seoul, Lee's office Cheong Wa Dae said.

Strauss-Kahn pledged close ties with South Korea in accomplishing substantial results out of the summit, noting that a partnership between Seoul and the IMF has been bolstered as South Korea plays a host to the November summit.

Lee, who is currently in the South Korean city of Gyeongju for the two-day gathering of the G20 finance ministers and central bankers, is also scheduled to meet with heads of the World Bank and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, according to Cheong Wa Dae.
