SEOUL, March 10 (Yonhap) -- Pope Francis will meet with President Park Geun-hye and attend a gathering of Catholic youths from more than a dozen Asian nations in his first visit to South Korea this August, Seoul's presidential office said Monday.

The Aug. 14-18 visit by the symbol of modest living and neighborly love will be a good opportunity to spread a message of love and peace not only to the Korean Peninsula, but also Northeast Asia, presidential spokesman Min Kyung-wook said.
