Trilateral meeting between leaders of S.Korea, US, Japan in Spain during NATO summit

SEOUL, 26th June, 2022 (WAM) -- South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol will meet leaders of the United States and Japan on Wednesday during the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit in Madrid, an official at the South Korean presidential office said on Sunday.

The trilateral meeting will be the first such gathering since September 2017, the official said, adding that President Yoon and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida are not likely to hold a separate meeting.

Yoon will be the first South Korean president to attend a NATO summit, as the country, along with Japan, Australia and New Zealand, has been invited as the organisation's Asia-Pacific partners.
