Australian and Malaysian government officials are due to meet later this month, Reuters reports. The plan for Lynas Corp's controversial waste storage project is likely to be at the top of the agenda.

Bill Johnston, Western Australia's minister for mines, will meet Yeo Bee Yin, Malaysia's energy minister, in Perth on June 20.

Australia's Lynas is waiting to get an operating license for its Malaysian processing plant renewed before it expires in September.
