President Moon Jae-in says that South Korea will greatly improve its relations with Indonesia and other Southeast Asian nations.

The president made the remark on Wednesday in a dinner meeting with a group of some 400 South Korean residents in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Moon said that South Korea will upgrade and develop its exchange and cooperation with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations(Asean), including Indonesia, to the level of its relationships with the four major countries, referring to the US, China, Japan and Russia.

Stressing that Indonesia is a key member of Asean, Moon said that he has always emphasized the need to expand Seoul’s foreign relations beyond the four major countries.

He said that South Korea could take advantage of its geopolitical position as a bridge nation when it looks beyond the four major powers in the region, expressing his hope to build great relations with Indonesian President Joko Widodo.
