Kurt Campbell, U.S. assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, is set to visit Seoul Friday for talks with his counterparts over some issues of mutual concern, officials said in Seoul on Thursday.

The diplomat's trip will be on the last leg of his Asian tour, which also brought him to China, Mongolia and Indonesia.

On Friday, he is scheduled to meet with South Korea's foreign minister Kim Sung-hwan and deputy foreign minister Kim Jae-shin as well as Wi Sung-lac, South Korea's top envoy to the six-party talks stalled since December 2008.

Issues on the table are expected to include the Seoul-Washington military alliance, regional and global issues of mutual concern, according to the foreign ministry.
