Foreign Ministers of S. Korea, Japan Likely to Hold Talks in Vancouver

The top diplomats of South Korea and Japan are likely to hold talks in Canada on the sidelines of a meeting of international foreign ministers set to open in Vancouver on Tuesday. 

According to Japan's Asahi Shimbun daily on Friday, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono told a local program on Thursday that a meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha will be naturally arranged on the sidelines of the Vancouver meeting. 

The South Korean Foreign Ministry also hinted on Thursday that schedules could be coordinated to arrange a possible bilateral meeting or contact between the two ministers.

The Vancouver meeting, co-hosted by the U.S. and Canada, will discuss diplomatic efforts to resolve the North Korean nuclear crisis. 

The countries invited to send representatives to the meeting are the so-called "Sending Powers," which are those that contributed troops or aid to the UN war effort during the Korean War. Japan, India and Sweden will also participate in the meeting.
