Japan to postpone trilateral summit with China, South Korea

Sunday morning’s Yomiuri reported on the likelihood that a trilateral summit between Japan, China, and South Korea that Japan is planning to host will be postponed for the time being due to the lack of momentum for dialogue in light of the ongoing domestic political confusion in South Korea as well as strained relations between Japan and South Korea over the issue of comfort women statues and China and South Korea over the deployment of a THAAD system. The paper wrote that if South Korean President Park is dismissed, the trilateral summit is likely to be postponed until after the South Korean presidential election, which is expected to be held at the end of April at the earliest.
