Top Office: S. Korea-China-Japan Summit to be Held in Japan in May
The presidential office says a summit between South Korea, China and Japan will be held in Japan next month.
Presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom made the revelation as he released a written press briefing on the results of President Moon Jae-in’s meeting with Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono the previous day.
Moon told Kono that Seoul will actively cooperate for the upcoming three-way summit to be held successfully as he highly assessed Tokyo’s efforts to make the summit happen.
The presidential office had, so far, failed to confirm whether the leaders of the three neighboring countries would hold a summit, only saying that efforts are being made for the meeting to be held in early May.
Moon will visit Japan for the first time since he took office to attend the summit.
He will be the first South Korean president to visit Japan since President Lee Myung-bak in December 2011.
