S. Korea, U.S., Japan to hold senior officials' meeting on Tue.

SEOUL, Oct. 9 Kyodo

South Korea, the United States and Japan will hold a senior officials' meeting next Tuesday in Washington, a South Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman said Thursday.

South Korean Deputy Foreign Minister Lee Yong Joon, U.S. Undersecretary of State William Burns and Japan's Deputy Foreign Minister Kenichiro Sasae will attend the Trilateral Senior Officials' Meeting, Moon Tae Young told reporters.

''At the upcoming consultations, extensive discussions will be held on issues concerning the three countries such as the situation in Northeast Asia, regional cooperation and other issues of international security,'' Moon said.

Moon added he anticipates the talks will be held on a regular basis even if decisions on the next meeting will be made after the talks.

The arrangement of trilateral talks has usually come after the three countries feel the necessity for talks, which have not been held for the last three years, Moon said.
