China, Japan, and South Korea to Hold Summit

Japanese PM Fumio Kishida, South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol, and Chinese Premier Li Qiang will hold a trilateral meeting for the first time in four years on May 27th.

The last summit was held in 2019 in the southwestern Chinese city of Chengdu in December 2019.

The leaders will discuss a variety of topics, including economic cooperation, people-to-people exchanges, and how to address North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons. 

It is not known if the trio will discuss the current issues between Taiwan and China. 

The summit is supposed to be held annually; however, it has often been postponed or canceled due to issues over Japanese colonial history with China and South Korea, souring current relations.
