Japan, China arranging defence ministers’ meeting in June -Kyodo


TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan and China are making arrangements to hold a meeting between their defence ministers on the sidelines of an international conference in Singapore next month, Kyodo news agency said on Monday, citing unnamed sources.

The report comes after Group of Seven (G7) declarations issued at a summit in Hiroshima singled out China on such issues as Taiwan and economic coercion, prompting Beijing to summon Japan’s ambassador to China.
