South Korea and Japan say plans for a meeting within the next week in Thailand are underway.
South Korea's defense ministry said today that Defense Minister Jeong Kyeong-doo and Japan's Taro Kono are making final preparations for possible talks sometime between Saturday and next Tuesday.
It stressed, however, that the meeting is not yet confirmed.
According to Tokyo-based Kyodo News, the Japanese defense minister plans to ask Jeong to cancel South Korea's plan to terminate the two countries' military intel-sharing pact, known as GSOMIA.
The pact is due to expire on November 23rd.
If realized, the meeting between the ministers would be the first since October last year.
