WASHINGTON, Aug. 2 (Yonhap) — U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has no plans to meet his North Korean counterpart at a regional gathering in the Philippines later this week, a U.S. official said Wednesday.

Tillerson is scheduled to participate in a series of meetings involving ASEAN in Manila starting Saturday.

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho is also expected to attend the ASEAN Regional Forum.

“The secretary has no plans to meet the North Korean foreign minister in Manila. I don’t expect to see that happen,” Susan Thornton, acting assistant secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, said in a teleconference previewing his upcoming trip.
