The foreign ministers of Japan, China and South Korea will hold a one-day meeting Monday in Shanghai with trilateral coordination on addressing North Korea's nuclear ambitions topping the agenda.

They are also expected to discuss climate change, energy efficiency and other matters. Japan's proposal for the creation of an East Asian community akin to the European Union may also be taken up, according to Japanese officials.

"With the vision of an East Asian community for the future, we will steadily move forward step by step" in building "future-oriented" relations with other Asian economies, Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada said Sunday in Tokyo.

"Economic integration (in the region) has developed to a considerable level, and there is already a high degree of interdependence," Okada said on an NHK talk show.

The talks involving Okada, Yang Jiechi of China and Yu Myung Hwan of South Korea come as regional powers are stepping up diplomatic drives to bring North Korea back to the stalled six-party talks on its denuclearization.

Okada is scheduled to meet separately with Yang prior to the trilateral talks.

Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama will visit South Korea for talks with President Lee Myung Bak on Oct. 9, a South Korean government official said Sunday.

Hatoyama will meet Lee on the eve of a trilateral summit in Beijing among China, Japan and South Korea.

By selecting South Korea as his first country to visit in Asia after taking office Sept. 16, Hatoyama wants to demonstrate his emphasis on Tokyo-Seoul relations.

Hatoyama and Lee are expected to discuss bilateral ties and the North Korean nuclear issue, according to Japanese and South Korean government sources.

They may also discuss a visit by Emperor Akihito to South Korea and granting voting rights in Japanese local elections to foreign permanent residents, including South Koreans.

Lee expressed hope earlier this month that the Emperor will visit South Korea next year to "put an end to the sense of distance" between the two countries as 2010 marks a century since the beginning of Japan's 35-year-long colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula.

Hatoyama and Lee are also expected to talk about responses to the global financial crisis following last week's Group of 20 financial summit in Pittsburgh and other global issues, including cuts in greenhouse gas emissions and counterterrorism measures, the sources said.

Hatoyama and Lee met in New York last week on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly

They also held talks in Seoul in early June during Hatoyama's first overseas trip as leader of the Democratic Party of Japan.
