SINGAPORE, Aug. 2 (Yonhap) -- South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha will engage in a round of bilateral diplomacy in Singapore involving China, Japan and Russia later Thursday amid annual regional forums organized by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), her ministry officials said.

She plans to hold back-to-back talks with her Chinese, Japanese and Russian counterparts in the afternoon, all of whom plan to attend the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) slated for Saturday.

High on the agenda, as usual, is North Korea. The focus is on ways to move the denuclearization of Korea forward and achieve a peace regime.
