"South Korea, China and Japan have agreed to hold a meeting of high-ranking diplomats in Seoul ahead of the three nations' foreign ministerial meeting, multiple government sources here said Sunday.

The sources said Lee Kyung-soo, South Korea's deputy foreign minister for political affairs, will meet with Liu Zhenmin, the Chinese vice foreign minister handling Asian affairs, and Shinsuke Sugiyama, Japan's deputy foreign minister. Their talks will be held around March 10 or 11, according to the sources.

This will be the first gathering of these three diplomats since September last year in Seoul, and comes just prior to the three-way foreign ministerial meeting, which will likely be held March 21 and 22 in the South Korean capital."
