Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha (R) and her Japanese counterpart Toshimitsu Motegi
The top diplomats of South Korea and Japan are set to hold bilateral talks on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference.
According to Seoul's foreign ministry, Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha will sit down with her Japanese counterpart, Toshimitsu Motegi, on Saturday.
Kang is expected to renew calls for Tokyo to retract its export restrictions and possibly discuss the 14 South Koreans on board the Diamond Princess cruise ship quarantined in Japan.
The two ministers also plan to meet with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, on the same day, to discuss trilateral cooperation on a wide range of issues, including on-going tensions in the Middle East and efforts to denuclearize North Korea.
Kang and Pompeo are also likely to hold a one-on-one in Munich, but a schedule has yet to be finalized.
All three officials last held a trilateral meeting in San Francisco in January.■
