Mitt Romney in South Korea

SEOUL, Dec. 7 (Yonhap) -- Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, a Republican considering a presidential bid, met with South Korea's Vice Foreign Minister Cho Jung-pyo in Seoul on Thursday.

Cho is working as acting foreign minister of the country, while his boss Song Min-soon is accompanying President Roh Moo-hyun on a trip abroad.

"We are honored to have a close partnership between our countries. And hopefully we will be successful in growing our economies and securing peace," Romney said in the beginning of his talks with Cho, which the media were allowed to cover.

The U.S. governor arrived in Seoul on Wednesday for a two-day stay, and he was also to pay courtesy calls to Prime Minister Han Myeong-sook and Unification Minister Lee Jong-seok.
