Park, Xi to Meet on Sidelines of Nuclear Summit

      March 21, 2014 10:43

      President Park Geun-hye and her Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping will meet on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague on March 24-25.

      Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei on Thursday told reporters that Xi also plans to hold summits with U.S. President Barack Obama, as well as the leaders of Britain, Finland and Kazakhstan.

      But Xi will not sit face to face with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

      Park and Xi held their last summit on the sidelines of the APEC meeting in Bali in October, and Xi is to visit Korea later this year.

      A diplomatic source in Beijing said the North Korean nuclear crisis will top the agenda of this year's Nuclear Security Summit. "It is time for the leaders of [South] Korea and China to hold comprehensive discussions about the North Korean nuclear problem," the source said.

      Another issue the two need to discuss is how to deal with Japan's continued attempts to shirk its responsibilities for atrocities during World War II.
