With only a few months left until South Korea
hosts a big multilateral summit, President Moon Jae-in says it will be “meaningful” if
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un attended the event. But he says progress on denuclearization must
come first. The Bank of Korea keeps its key interest rate
steady for now, but hints at a future cut, possibly within the year’s end. The central bank says its waiting to see how
trade tensions both at home and abroad will impact the economy. Culture ministers of South Korea, China and
Japan agree to cooperate on cultural programs, especially for younger generations. In separate talks, the ministers from Seoul
and Tokyo, putting aside diplomatic tensions, also decide to boost cultural exchanges. And…a mass protest in Hong Kong scheduled
for Saturday has been called off after organizers fail to get government approval. Public anger is likely to grow even further
after police arrest several high-profile activists.
