Japan, China, S. Korea Unlikely to Hold Summit in July

Tokyo, June 28 (Jiji Press)--Japan, China and South Korea are unlikely to hold an envisioned three-way summit in July, Japanese government sources told Jiji Press on Wednesday. Japan proposed holding the summit in Tokyo in July, but Beijing has expressed opposition to an early top-level meeting among the three Asian countries, the sources said. The trilateral talks are now seen taking place after the Communist Party of China's national congress in autumn that will mark the start of Chinese President Xi Jinping's second term. Japan currently holds the presidency of the three-way talks. The last time the country hosted such a meeting was 2011. END
