    They will want to remind Seoul to abide closely by U.S.-led sanctions against North Korea as the North continues to call for an easing of economic strictures while turning to Russia and China for help.

    Biegun will attend a regular bilateral working group meeting on May 8 to 10. The Foreign Ministry on Thursday said the agenda of the meeting has not been set yet, and Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha only said Biegun's visit will involve "important discussions."

    Japan's NHK reported that Bolton plans to visit Seoul on May 28 to meet with his South Korean counterpart Chung Eui-yong, but diplomatic sources said no details of the hawkish official's visit have been decided.
