Leaders of U.S., Japan, South Korea to meet in Spain  

Monday’s Nikkei and Sankei took up a South Korean government announcement on Sunday that President Yoon will hold a three-way summit with President Biden and Prime Minister Kishida on the sidelines of the NATO conference in Madrid on Wednesday. It will be the first trilateral summit between the three partners in almost five years. According to the dailies, there will be no bilateral summit between the Japanese and ROK leaders because the two sides are not ready to hold substantive discussions on the bilateral history disputes. Sankei claimed that there will not even be a “pull-aside” between them, quoting an unnamed senior ROK official as saying: “It’s better not to organize even a pull-aside if there is nothing to announce in a press readout.”
