Representatives from Taiwan and Japan will meet in Taipei next month to discuss fishing near Okinotori, the southernmost point of Japanese territory, the island’s Foreign Ministry said Thursday.

Tsai Ming-yao, secretary-general of the Association of East Asian Relations, the Taiwanese body in charge of ties with Japan in the absence of formal diplomatic relations, told a news conference that the two sides will hold the first round of official talks to discuss the establishment of a dialogue mechanism for cooperation on maritime affairs.
