Yoon meets with delegations from Indonesia, Central African Republic

SEOUL, May 11 (Yonhap) -- President Yoon Suk-yeol met Wednesday with delegations from Indonesia, the Central African Republic and other nations who were in Seoul to attend his inauguration ceremony the previous day.

In a meeting with former Indonesian President Megawati Sukarnoputri, Yoon discussed the two countries' shared experiences in achieving democratization and economic development, saying he hopes for Indonesia's continued support for South Korea as this year's chair of the Group of 20.

Megawati handed Yoon a congratulatory letter from Indonesian President Joko Widodo, saying he had also invited Yoon to visit Indonesia.

The president later met with Central African Republic President Faustin-Archange Touadera, saying he welcomed the first visit by the African nation's president to South Korea in 20 years.

Touadera said he was impressed by Tuesday's inauguration ceremony and honored to attend.

Yoon also held separate meetings with delegations from Canada and Saudi Arabia, and then Qatar, Nigeria, Ecuador and Mongolia as a group.

Separately, he met with a parliamentary delegation from Japan.
