South Korean leader scheduled to attend opening ceremony for the games

TOKYO -- Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga and South Korean President Moon Jae-in are expected to meet in Japan this month, Nikkei has learned, timed with Moon's trip to attend the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics.

Officials of both countries are working out the details for what would be the first summit between Suga and Moon. South Korea had sought a meeting of the two leaders if Moon made the trip for the Olympics ceremony on July 23, and Japan has agreed to move forward with the plans.
