Japan the US and South Korea will meet this week in Washington to discuss North Korea and its nuclear program. Envoy for North Korea policy, Glyn Davies, will host a trilateral meeting Wednesday with his Japanese counterpart Junichi Ihara and South Korean counterpart Cho Tae-yong.
The State Department said it reflects close cooperation among the three nations on pursuing the verifiable denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in a peaceful manner.
It follows meetings in Washington this week between Davies and his Chinese counterpart, Wu Dawei, which discussed under what conditions six-nation disarmament talks with North Korea could restart. The North says it wants to restart the talks, without preconditions, it withdrew from five years ago.
