By Kang Seung-woo

President Park Geun-hye congratulated Donald Trump on being elected as the 45th president of the United States, Wednesday.

"Park sent a congratulatory message to President-elect Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence on winning the election, hoping for closer cooperation between the two nations on North Korea's nuclear issue and a stronger ROK-U.S. alliance," presidential spokesman Jung Youn-kuk said.

The government will work closely with the incoming U.S. administration for peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, in Northeast Asia and beyond on the back of the deepening and developing alliance, Jung said.

Trump is scheduled to take office on Jan. 20, 2017.
