WASHINGTON, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) -- Foreign ministers of the United States, South Korea and Japan will meet next Monday in Washington to discuss the recent developments on the Korean Peninsula and their impact on regional security, the U.S. State Department said on Wednesday.

Other "regional and global issues" will also be discussed by U. S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, South Korean Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan and Japanese Foreign Minister Seiji Maehara, the department said in a statement.

"This meeting demonstrates the extraordinary close coordination between the United States, the Republic of Korea and Japan, and our commitment to security on the Korean Peninsula and stability in the region," the statement added.

Tensions persist on the Korean Peninsula after the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and South Korea exchanged artillery fire on Nov. 23, leaving four South Koreans dead and more than a dozen others injured.
