Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and U.S. President Barack Obama plan to hold talks on the sidelines of the two-day Group of Seven summit in Mie Prefecture later this month, a government source said Friday.

The talks, likely to take place May 26, are expected to center on how to respond to North Korea’s missile and nuclear weapons development, as well as China’s island construction and militarization of outposts in the disputed South China Sea, the source said.
