S. Korea, Japan, US defense chiefs to meet

Will be interesting to see the results of this and how well the trilateral relationship does after recent events.  I concur that the members of the trilateral relationship need to show a united front but given the Japanese visit to Pyongyang and other Japanese actions of late, I have to ask the question: Will Japan play well with others?

The defense chiefs of South Korea, Japan and the United States will hold their first trilateral meeting for four years at the end of this month, with North Korea likely to top the agenda.

The three top officials will meet on the sidelines of the annual Asia Security Summit to be held in Singapore from May 31 to June 2, a South Korean defense ministry spokesman said Wednesday.

It will be their first three-way ministerial-level meeting since 2009, with defense dialogue between Seoul and Tokyo having been marred in recent years by a long-running territorial dispute and other issues.
