Seoul, Dec. 3 (BNA): South Korea and Japan are expected to resume high-level economic talks later this month.
During a summit in Lithuania’s Vilnius in July, South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida agreed to resume the economic talks and have since reaffirmed the commitment in two follow-up summits in August and last month, Yonhap reported.
First launched in 1999, the forum has since been held alternately in South Korea and Japan before being suspended following the 14th session in Tokyo in January 2016.
On Friday, the two countries also clinched a US$10 billion currency swap deal, eight years after the former deal ended.
