Japan prepares for trilateral summit with South Korea, China

SOUTH Korea, Japan, and China are working on a plan to hold a trilateral summit by the end of the month.

Final arrangements are being made to hold the trilateral summit on May 26 and 27, according to South Korea’s Foreign Ministry.

The meeting will bring together South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, and Chinese Premier Li Qiang.

The three foreign ministers will focus on six areas including people-to-people exchanges, economy and trade, public health, and peace and security, among other things.

An official announcement for the conference is expected in a few days.

The current three-way summit framework is being chaired by South Korea.

Negotiations to revive the summit have been discussed by the three countries since last year.

The upcoming meeting raised hopes of easing the growing geopolitical rift and helping ensure stability in the Asia-Pacific.

The three Asian countries held their first summit in 2019 but postponed the annual meeting in 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and strings of political differences.
