Tokyo, Nov 30: Japan’s plan to hold a trilateral summit between leaders of Japan, Chi and South Korea before the end of this year has not changed after South Korean President Park Geun-hye expressed her willingness to step down before her term ends, officials said. Japan’s Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Kotaro Nogami told a press conference after Park’s announcement that there has been “no particular change” to the government’s efforts to arrange the trilateral talks before the end of the year, Xinhua news agency reported. Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida said Japan will hold the trilateral summit before the end of the year as “the Japan-South Korea-Chi summit is an extremely important framework for dialogue”. (IANS)
