The talks, to be held Sunday, will follow US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's trip to Pyongyang, which is scheduled to start Thursday.
South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha will hold bilateral talks with Pompeo to listen to the outcome of her US counterpart's trip to North Korea. The meeting will be followed by three-way talks involving Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono.
"At the South Korea-US and South Korea-US-Japan foreign ministers' talks, Minister Kang will listen to the outcome of Secretary Pompeo's North Korea trip and hold in-depth discussions on ways to achieve the goals of complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the establishment of permanent peace," the foreign ministry said.
The three-way talks will be the second of their kind to be held in less than a month. The top diplomats of the three countries met in Seoul on June 14, two days after US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un held a historic summit in Singapore. (Yonhap)
