South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha plans to visit Tokyo on Sunday for back-to-back meetings on North Korea with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Japan's top diplomat Taro Kono, her ministry said.

Pompeo will debrief Kang and Kono on the results of his face-to-face talks with Kim Yong-chol, a senior North Korean communist party official, on concrete measures to follow up on the Singapore summit accord between President Donald Trump and the North's leader Kim Jong-un. It calls for the complete denuclearization of North Korea in return for security guarantees and normalization of bilateral ties.

The secretary made his third Pyongyang in as many months last week, accompanied by a team of working-level negotiators and several reporters.

Kang is scheduled to have bilateral and tripartite meetings with Pompeo and Kono to share the assessment of Pompeo's first visit to the North since the June 12 summit and discuss the next steps.

The three will then have a joint press conference. They had a similar session in Seoul two days after the Singapore summit.

Shortly after the Tokyo meeting, Kang is scheduled to fly to New Delhi from Tokyo to join President Moon Jae-in's trip there. (Yonhap)
