The defense chiefs of South Korea and the U.S. could meet this coming weekend to discuss the schedule of the allies' postponed joint military drills.
South Korea's defense ministry has confirmed... that Seoul's Defense Minister Song Young-moo and U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis are to meet "in the near future"... and the schedule is close to being finalized.
There have been reports the two will meet in Hawaii on Saturday.
The ministry says they'll discuss their alliance and the PyeongChang Olympics.
But it's widely seen that the focus will be on setting the schedule of their joint drills -- Key Resolve and Foal Eagle -- which were originally to kick off in late February or early March... but were delayed until after the Olympics.
