NEW DELHI, March 23 (Xinhua) -- Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will pay a four-day visit to South Korea starting Saturday, an official said.

"The Prime Minister's visit aims to give depth and greater meaning to our strategic partnership and to the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement," Indian Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai said.

Singh, who will participate in Nuclear Security Summit during his visit to Seoul, is slated to meet with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak on Sunday.

"The main objective of the Summit has been high-level attention on the global threat posed by nuclear terrorism and the measures that are required to prevent terrorists and other non-state actors from gaining access to sensitive nuclear materials and technologies," Mathai said.

This will be the second official visit by an Indian Prime Minister to South Korea after the visit of P.V. Narasimha Rao in 1993.
