US, Japan, S. Korea intelligence chiefs to hold talks next week - report

The intelligence chiefs of the United States, South Korea and Japan are expected to meet in Seoul early next week to discuss North Korea as well as continuing their trilateral cooperation under the new Prime Minister of Japan, Fumio Kishida, Yonhap News Agency reported citing a source with the South Korean government.

The news comes after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's sister Kim Yo-jong said that Pyongyang is prepared to formally declare an end to the Korean War if the other side shows "fairness and mutual respect."

Head of South Korea's National Intelligence Service (NIS), is expected to sit down with Avril Haines, the United States director of national intelligence, and Hiroaki Takizawa, Japan's cabinet intelligence director, which will mark their first meeting in five months.
