S. Korea-Japan summit to be held

New York, South Korean President Moon Jae-in will hold a bilateral summit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe this week, Moon's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said.

The Moon-Abe meeting will be held early Tuesday in New York. Moon arrived earlier in the day for the U.N. General Assembly, South Korean News Agency (Yonhap) reported.

The South Korea-Japan summit will come one day after Moon meets with US President Donald Trump for discussions on ways to move forward denuclearisation talks with North Korea.

Moon's trip here comes after his three-day visit to Pyongyang for his third bilateral summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

He will explain the outcome of his Pyongyang summit to the leaders of Japan and the US and discuss ways to further accelerate the North's denuclearisation process, a Cheong Wa Dae official said.

The Moon-Abe meeting will be the first of its kind since May, when the South Korean president visited Tokyo for a three-day summit that also involved Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.
