TOKYO (Reuters) – Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida is considering visiting South Korea on March 20, broadcaster Fuji TV reported on Wednesday.

Fuji TV, citing government sources, said Kishida wanted to meet with President Yun Suk Yeol ahead of South Korean legislative elections in April and discuss other issues, including North Korea.

Kishida last visited South Korea in May 2023 as part of the two East Asian neighbors’ “shuttle diplomacy” or regular visits between leaders in a bid to improve bilateral ties.
