NAGOYA (Kyodo) -- The foreign ministers of Japan and South Korea agreed Saturday to arrange for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and President Moon Jae In to meet in late December, a sign that the feuding countries are ramping up dialogue after Seoul decided to suspend the termination of a bilateral military intelligence-sharing pact.

Toshimitsu Motegi and Kang Kyung Wha confirmed that a trilateral summit including Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, to be held in Chengdu in China's Sichuan province, would be a good opportunity for their leaders to hold one-on-one talks, according to Japan's Foreign Ministry.
