SEOUL, Feb 20 (Reuters) — The Swiss central bank has told South Korea it wants to buy the Asian country's domestic government bonds for the first time, a Seoul newspaper reported on Monday. 
   Such moves by Western countries are relatively rare, the Maeil Business Newspaper reported.   
  "(Both countries) are discussing details such as the timing and amount of the possible purchase, and I expect it to be made in the near future," the newspaper quoted an unidentified official at the finance ministry as saying.   
  Finance ministry officials have said more central banks plan to buy South Korean bonds and that the government intended to have discussions with them beforehand to keep the local market stable.   
  «It is true that central banks of advanced countries as well as those in Asia are interested in investing in our government bonds, but nothing has been decided on purchase plans,» the finance ministry said in a statement issued in response to the report.   
  Foreign investors boosted their holdings of South Korea's won bonds by a net 7.11 trillion won ($6.32 billion) last year in addition to a net 16.91 trillion won recorded in 2010, according to official data.   
  Central banks in many countries have been diversifying their foreign-currency reserves into higher-yielding but relatively safe assets in emerging-market economies away from the U.S. dollar, for which interest rates are kept near zero.   
  Foreign ownership of South Korean government bonds remains relatively low at 6.9 percent as of the end of last year, up from 6.6 percent at the end of 2010, data shows.  
  For the Swiss National Bank, any purchases of South Korean debt would likely be quite small: 83 percent of its foreign exchange reserves are invested in bonds with a AAA rating, according to SNB data from the third-quarter, the most recent available. 
   The SNB holds 55 percent of its reserves in euros, 25 percent in dollars and 3 percent in «other» currencies. 
   South Korea's won bonds are rated A-plus, A and A1 by Fitch, S&P and Moody's, respectively. 
   A spokesman for the SNB was not immediately available for comment.
