15:13, March 06, 2012

SEOUL, March 6 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Lee Myung-bak is scheduled to meet Tuesday with former policymakers and scholars who are to advise him on global nuclear security ahead of a forum in Seoul.

Lee is meeting with former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Russian foreign minister Igor Ivanov and Graham Allison, a professor and expert on nuclear strategy at Harvard University, according to the foreign ministry here.

They are part of 15-member "Eminent Persons Group," formed to provide Lee with policy proposals and advice prior to the Seoul Nuclear Security Summit, slated for March 26-27 in the South Korea' s capital city.

The summit, aimed at reducing and protecting radioactive materials and keeping terrorists at bay from nuclear materials and facilities, is expected to bring together more than 50 heads of state and representatives of international organizations.

"Their extensive experience and insight will help Seoul successfully host the summit," the ministry said in a press release.
