Jeju is the most likely venue for a Korea, China and Japan summit tentatively scheduled for late May. The three nations are currently negotiating plans for the summit, which will be attended by President Lee Myung-bak, Chinese Premier Wen Jia Bao and Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hato-yama. It will be the third summit of Asia’s three largest economies following one in Beijing late last year. High-ranking officials from South Korea, Japan and China met on April 2 in Jeju to work out details for their annual three-way summit, South Korea’s foreign ministry said. During that meeting, South Korean Deputy Foreign Minister Lee Young Joon and his counterparts from China and Japan discussed how to bring North Korea back to the six-party nuclear disarmament talks, regional and international concerns and ways to promote cooperation between the countries, as well as preparations for the upcoming summit.
