Liberman's first stop will be Seoul, where he will take part in ceremonies marking 50 years of Israeli-South Korean diplomatic ties. In addition to meeting with senior government officials, including his counterpart Kim Sung-Hwan, he will also tour the demilitarized zone with North Korea.

From South Korea he will go to China, for a visit time to commemorate 20 years of Sino-Israeli ties. In Beijing he will meet with his Chinese counterpart,  Yang Jiechi, as well as top Communist Party officials and Israeli businessmen in the capital.  Liberman, accompanied by Israeli business men, will then travel to Qingado and Shanghai.

Iran is expected to be a major focus of talks in China, which is one of Teheran's largest oil customers.
