South Korea, Japan and China will hold talks this week to boost cooperation on cyberspace issues, the Foreign Ministry said Tuesday.

The three sides will meet in Seoul Thursday to discuss the cyber security environment, including recent cyber threats, each country's policies on cyberspace issues, international rules governing cyberspace, and cooperation against cyber crime and terrorism, the ministry said in a press release.

The meeting will come about two weeks ahead of a trilateral summit to be held in South Korea, although its exact date has yet to be announced.

The talks will be led by Choi Sung-joo, South Korea's ambassador for international security affairs, and his Japanese and Chinese counterparts, Makita Shimokawa and Wu Haitao.

It will be the second meeting of its kind following the first round in Beijing last year.

Choi also plans to hold bilateral talks with Shimokawa and Wu on Wednesday. (Yonhap)
