South Korean President Park Geun-hye and Chinese President Xi Jinping will hold bilateral talks on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague next week, China's foreign ministry said Thursday.

China's foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei made the announcement during a regular press briefing. Xi will also hold bilateral talks with U.S. President Barack Obama as well as the leaders of Britain, Finland and Kazakhstan, Hong said, without elaborating.

It will be Park and Xi's second summit, following a meeting in June.

The global nuclear summit on March 24-25, the third of its kind since 2010, will bring together a number of global leaders, including Park, Obama, Xi and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

South Korean officials have said it is highly likely that Park could hold a three-way summit with Obama and Abe in The Hague. (Yonhap)
