South Korean President to meet opposition chief

The South Korean presidential office said on Monday that President Park Geun-hye had agreed to meet Choo Mi-ae, leader of the Democratic Party of Korea, on Tuesday at her invitation.

Representative Choo Mi-ae, proposed talks with President Park to discuss a way to address a political impasse sparked by a corruption scandal involving the president's longtime confidante. Ms. Choo made the overtures for dialogue to Han Gwang-ok, Park's chief of staff, early Monday morning. The proposal followed the weekend's massive rally in downtown Seoul, which called for Park's resignation.
