Japan, China, ROK to hold another trilateral summit this year

Today’s Yomiuri and Nikkei wrote that coordination is underway between Japan, China, and South Korea to hold another trilateral summit later this year, claiming that the Chinese government has proposed the idea perhaps in a bid to rein in the Trump administration’s protectionism by issuing a trilateral message calling for free trade amid rising bilateral trade friction. The Japanese side has responded positively to the proposal in order to urge the two neighbors to maintain strong pressure on North Korea until concrete progress is made on denuclearization. Since an LDP presidential election is planned in September, the second trilateral summit of the year will probably be convened in the autumn or later.
