Foreign ministers' meeting between Seoul, Tokyo and Beijing in the works
한중일 외교장관 회담, 내달 中개최 조율Amid rising tensions between Seoul and Tokyo, the top diplomats of the two countries will hold trilateral talks with their Chinese counterpart sometime in August.South Korea's foreign ministry confirmed a report by Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun, that such a session is in the works but that no detail can be confirmed as of now.This would be the first time such a meeting takes place since August 2016 in Tokyo.The paper cited sources that say the intensifying Seoul-Tokyo trade spat and North Korea's denuclearization are issues likely to be on the agenda.If the meeting does happen, Yomiuri says a bilateral meeting between the foreign ministers can also be expected, in which the dispute stemming from Japan's wartime forced labor is likely to be discussed.
