Japan and South Korea are making final arrangements to confirm during a summit this weekend that they will cooperate in dealing with illegal fishing by Chinese boats, sources said.
Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda and South Korean President Lee Myung Bak will agree to exchange information and call on China to take preventive steps against poaching at a meeting Sunday in Kyoto, the sources said.
Anti-Chinese feelings are running high in South Korea over the slaying of a coast guardsman, allegedly by a Chinese fisherman. Japan's authorities have been watching Chinese boats sailing in waters between the countries, including near the disputed Senkaku Islands.
