WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Park Geun-hye on the sidelines of a nuclear summit in The Hague next week, the White House said.

"We believe this is a very important message to show the United States aligned with our two most important allies in northeast Asia," White House aide Ben Rhodes said.
