National security advisors of U.S., Japan, ROK to meet on April 2

NHK reported on a statement released by the White House on Tuesday that National Security Advisor Sullivan will welcome National Security Secretariat Secretary General Kitamura and Office of National Security Director Suh Hoon for a trilateral dialogue at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis on April 2. The statement reportedly said the meeting “provides an opportunity for our nations to consult on a wide range of regional issues and foreign policy priorities, including maintaining peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, and combating climate change.” Noting that the Biden administration is in the final stages of reviewing its policy on North Korea, the network projected that the U.S. side will discuss this with Japan and South Korea and also discuss with Japan how to deal with the abduction issue. The network said this is the first national security advisor-level meeting among the three nations under the Biden administration, and the statement reportedly stressed the significance of the meeting by saying it reflects “the importance we place on broadening and deepening our cooperation on key issues and advancing our shared prosperity across a free and open Indo-Pacific.”
