Japan, US, Australia consider first summit (Aug 24, 2007)

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, his Australian counterpart John Howard and US President George W. Bush will discuss North Korea's nuclear disarmament and China's military build-up, it said, citing unnamed government sources.

Japan will propose holding the trilateral summit talks regularly, the Yomiuri said.

In March, Abe signed a security accord with Australia, Japan's first such agreement with any country besides the United States, its main ally.

Japan and Australia are both close US allies and supported the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
