VIENTIANE, July 25 (Yonhap) -- U.S. Secretary of States John Kerry and China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi are likely to hold talks on Monday during the on-going Southeast Asian countries' meetings in Vientiane, a Chinese diplomatic source said.

The two countries are currently in the process of arranging a meeting although the final decision has yet to be made, the source said on condition of anonymity.

The U.S. deployment of its advanced anti-ballistic missile defense system in South Korea is predicted to dominate the bilateral talks if they are held.

Seoul and Washington announced they will deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system on July 8, despite objections by Beijing, which claimed that the move hurt its vital strategic interests.
