South Korean president to address Congress
Tuesday - 4/23/2013, 4:30pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- House Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nur) says he will invite South Korean President Park Geun-hye (goon-hay) to address a joint meeting of Congress on May 8.
Park, who last December was elected as the first woman president of South Korea, will also hold talks with President Barack Obama on May 7.
Boehner says that Park's speech to Congress will be a vital reminder of the U.S.-Korean partnership at a time of provocations from North Korea.
She will be the sixth South Korean leader to address a joint meeting of Congress. The last foreign leader to speak to Congress in October 2011 was a former South Korean president, Lee Myung-bak.
