SEOUL  - South Korean President Park Geun-hye will make a statement on Tuesday, her office said, as her administration tries to weather an influence-peddling scandal.

Yonhap News Agency cited a presidential official as saying the address will not be an announcement of Park's resignation.

Park, whose presidency has been engulfed by the scandal involving a long-time friend, has apologized twice but resisted mounting public calls to step down.

A presidential spokesman said in a text message that she would make an address to the public at 2:30 p.m. local time (0530 GMT).
