TOKYO, Sept. 25 (AP) - (Kyodo)—Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada will make a two-day visit to Cambodia from Oct. 2 to attend a foreign ministerial meeting between Japan and five Mekong region countries, the Japanese Foreign Ministry said Friday in a press release.
While attending the Oct. 3 Japan-Mekong Foreign Ministers' Meeting in Siem Reap in northwestern Cambodia, Okada is also expected to hold bilateral talks on the sidelines with his counterparts from the other countries attending the meeting, possibly including Myanmar.
Aside from Japan, the meeting will be attended by Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and Laos. The first such foreign ministerial meeting was held in January 2008.
Okada will leave Cambodia Oct. 3 and return to Japan the following day, the press release said.
