John Kerry To Travel To Japan For Security Meeting

(Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will travel to Japan next week for a security meeting before joining President Barack Obama in Bali for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation economic meeting, the State Department said on Thursday.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel is also attending the U.S.-Japan Security Consultative Committee meeting in Tokyo on October 2-3, according to the department.

U.S. and Japanese leaders met on security in June 2011 in Washington, and next month's meeting is another "opportunity to build on our already broad and comprehensive bilateral relationship," State Department Jen Psaki said in a statement.
