Default Japan confirms meeting of PM Abe with South Korea president

Japan and South Korea said on Friday that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will meet South Korean President Park Geun-hye for the first time in a trilateral meeting with the United States next week. The meeting, on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, comes amid chilled ties between the Asian neighbors over anger in South Korea that Japanese leaders have not atoned for Japan's wartime aggression, including the use of Korean sex slaves, as well as friction over the ownership of contested islands. In move to thaw ties with another neighbor, Japan said it had agreed to hold formal talks with North Korea for the first time in more than a year to discuss Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs, the fate of Japanese citizens abducted decades ago and other bilateral issues. Abe, Park and U.S. President Barack Obama would discuss nuclear non-proliferation and missile programs, the Japanese and Korean foreign ministries said, in talks on either March 24 or 25.
