SEOUL (Reuters) - The foreign ministers of South Korea, China and Japan will meet on Saturday in Seoul for the first time in nearly three years, South Korea's foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

South Korea and China's ties with Japan have chilled over what they view as Tokyo's reluctance to atone for its wartime past.

The three-way summit meetings of the three countries' leaders have also been on hold since the last time they met in May 2012.
