The President is accompanied by a delegation, which includes the Foreign Minister, the Minister for Science, ICT and Future Planning, and the Minister for Trade and Industry.

South Korea is keen to enter India's growing nuclear market as it wants to build an atomic power plant here but New Delhi is not rushing into it.

The government first wants to complete the projects already initiated, including Koodankulam III and IV and Jaitapur, which are facing hurdles on various counts. However, India is willing to have cooperation with South Korea in other aspects of the nuclear field, like research.

South Korea had conveyed its desire to build a nuclear plant in India when a delegation from its Ministry of Science came here recently.

She will be meeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday.

India and South Korea, two of Asia's biggest economies, struck a civilian nuclear agreement in 2011 and now Seoul is exploring possibilities for a nuclear project, officials said.
