The intelligence chiefs of South Korea, the United States and Japan will reportedly hold a closed-door meeting Monday in Seoul to discuss North Korea.
According to local sources, National Intelligence Service Director Park Jie-won will sit down with his counterparts from Washington and Tokyo, Avril Haines and Hiroaki Takizawa, respectively.
It will be their first talks in five months, likely focused on Pyongyang's recent testing of new weapons and other issues of mutual concern.
President Moon Jae-in's proposal to formally declare the end of the Korean War in order to promote peace on the Korean Peninsula could also be on the agenda.
Moon made the suggestion while addressing the United Nations General Assembly last month, calling for international support.
