South Korean President Park Geun-Hye has accepted an invitation to pay a state visit to Britain later this year, Buckingham Palace announced on Monday.

Queen Elizabeth II will host Park at the palace in London in the autumn, a statement said, without giving an exact date.

The British monarch and her husband Prince Philip paid a state visit to South Korea in 1999, while former president Roh Moo-Hyun made a state visit to Britain in 2004.
