Biden proposes 3-way Japan, US, S.Korea summit

US President Joe Biden proposed in a three-way summit with Japanese Prime Minister Kishida Fumio and South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol on Sunday to have another trilateral meeting in the United States.

The first three-way summit in almost half a year was held in Hiroshima on the sidelines of the G7 summit.

According to the White House, Biden commended Kishida and Yoon "on their courageous work to improve their bilateral ties," noting that the three countries' trilateral partnership and the Indo Pacific are stronger because of their efforts.

The White House added the three leaders also discussed how to take their trilateral cooperation to new heights, including with new coordination in the face of the DPRK's illicit nuclear and missile threats, on economic security, and on their respective Indo-Pacific strategies.
