Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to visit Japan, South Korea and China later this month mainly for talks on North Korean issues, reports Kyodo.

Tillerson is arranging a visit to Japan on March 17 and 18 for talks with Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida.

The planned trip comes as the Trump administration is reportedly reviewing Washington’s U.S. policy toward North Korea.

During a visit to Beijing, Tillerson plans to meet with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and possibly with President Xi Jinping, according to the sources. The two sides are expected to coordinate a meeting between Xi and Trump in the United States as early as April.

In Seoul, Tillerson plans to hold talks with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se at which North Korea’s weapons development as well as the Feb. 13 killing of Kim Jong Nam, the half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in Malaysia are likely to be on top of the agenda.
