SEOUL, June 24 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Lee Myung-bak will hold summits with his U.S. and Japanese counterparts in Canada on the sidelines of a G-20 meeting, his office said Thursday.

Lee will meet with U.S. President Barak Obama on Saturday, his office Cheong Wa Dae said in a press release. News reports said the agenda will range from holding the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) accountable for sinking a South Korean warship to ratification of a two-way free trade pact between the two countries.

Lee is scheduled to hold a bilateral meeting with Naoto Kan, Japan's new prime minister, on the same day, and might sit down with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for talks, Cheong Wa Dae said.

Lee will leave for Panama next Monday to meet with President Ricardo Martinelli and attend a summit with the eight member countries of the Central American Integration System (SICA).

The president will pay a visit to Mexico from June 30 to July 2 for talks with Mexican President Felipe Calderon and return home on July 3, according to Cheong Wa Dae.
