BEIJING — Foreign Minister Wang Yi will attend the seventh foreign ministers’ meeting between China, the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Japan, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson said on March 17.

The trilateral meeting of foreign ministers is scheduled for March 21 in Seoul, said Spokesperson Hong Lei at a regular press conference.

Foreign Ministers of the three countries will take stock of the development in trilateral cooperation and exchange views on the principles for cooperation and the direction of future development, said Hong.

The first foreign ministers’ meeting among the three countries was held in June 2007 in the ROK and had been since held annually.

The sixth meeting was held in April 2012. The following years saw a suspension of the meeting as China-Japan and ROK-Japan relations soured due to rows over historical and territorial issues.
