The top diplomats of South Korea, the United States, and Japan are set to hold three-way talks on the sidelines of the G7 ministerial meeting in London.
They will sit down together for the first in more than a year on Wednesday.
Foreign Minister Chung Eui-yong, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi are expected to discuss coordination on North Korea, the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccine distribution, and climate change issues, among others.
For Chung and Motegi, it will be their first direct encounter as they have not spoken since Chung took office in February amid strained bilateral relations.
It remains uncertain whether the two Asian ministers will meet separately.
An official at the foreign ministry in Seoul said there was nothing to confirm at this stage.
