Japan-S.Korea foreign minister talks expected soon

South Korea says the Japanese and South Korean foreign ministers will hold talks in Bangkok, Thailand, on Thursday.

South Korea's foreign ministry announced on Wednesday that Kang Kyung-wha and her counterpart Taro Kono will meet Thursday morning on the sidelines of the ASEAN Regional Forum in the Thai capital.

It will be the first talks between the two ministers since they met in Paris in May.

They are expected to talk about a rift between their countries over wartime labor issues and Japan's tighter screening of exports to South Korea.
