The top diplomats of South Korea, the United States and Japan met last week in London on the sidelines of the G7 ministers’ meeting. It was their first three-way meeting since the Biden Administration took office, with the U.S. having pushed for stronger trilateral cooperation amid major regional security challenges, such as nuclear threats from North Korea and the intense rivalry between Washington and Beijing. We discuss how the way forward will look for South Korea and Japan, and their cooperation with the U.S., in order to make the three-way relationship work.
