ROK-US-Japan to Hold Trilateral Meeting on September 1

A source from South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade announced on August 24 that the Republic of Korea, the United States and Japan will hold a Trilateral Coordination and Oversight Group (TCOG) meeting on September 1 in Seoul where the three countries will fine-tune their policies toward North Korea, which have seen dramatic changes following the inter-Korean summit.

"The three sides plan to evaluate the outcome of recent talks with North Korea, including the two minister-level talks between South and North Korea, the U.S.-North Korea talks on terrorism and the tenth round of negotiations between North Korea and Japan on the establishing of diplomatic relations. The TCOG meeting will also give direction for future policy toward North Korea," said the ministry source.
