US diplomat to discuss trade scuffle between Seoul, Tokyo

A top U.S. diplomat for East Asia is visiting here to convey Washington's view that Seoul and Tokyo should seek a diplomatic solution to their burgeoning trade war. David R. Stilwell, the new U.S. assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, will arrive in Seoul, Wednesday, to hold talks with foreign ministry officials including Minister Kang Kyung-wha, and senior presidential aides. Some analysts expect he may speak publicly about the feud. “Stilwell will deliver Washington's message that both sides need to seek a diplomatic solution as soon as possible,” a presidential aide said Tuesday.
