Trilateral dialogue regarding Fukushima to happen in Japan

Leaders of China and South Korea will be touring the disaster zone hit by the Japanese tsunami in the next few hours.

That is ahead of a summit meeting between Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and Japanese PM Naoto Kan taking place on Saturday and Sunday.

The trilateral dialogue - as its known - will pledge support for Japan's efforts to recover from the catastrophe, but there are concerns in China and South Korea about the way Japan has handled the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima power plant.

The BBC correspondent Roland Buerk reports from Tokyo.
