The Nihon Geizai Shimbun reported on May 28 that the Korean government has conveyed to the Japanese government the message that it will defer the three-party conference, in which Korean, American, and Japanese chief delegates of the six-party talks would have participated in, for a while.
Reporting the above by quoting a Japanese government official, the newspaper interpreted that Koreas intention is to hold the three-party conference after seeing the results of the Korea-U.S. summit and the inter-Korea ministerial conference on June 11 and 15, respectively.
The three-party chief delegate consultation has not been held since the end of the Seoul conference on February 26.
