"South Korea and the UAE have made many achievements throughout deeper cooperation in traditional energy sectors, including oil and nuclear power plants," he told the forum.

The countries UAE will "expand energy cooperation into the hydrogen sector, a core energy resource in the age of carbon neutrality", the President added.

Also on Sunday, Moon plans to pay a visit to a "Day of Korea" ceremony at the Expo 2020 Dubai and hold a meeting with the country's Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
