“There is still a big gap in the patent war with Apple but we still have several negotiation options including cross-licensing,” Shin told reporters at Seoul airport shortly before his departure for the United States.

Shin is accompanying chief executive Choi Gee-sung, who is scheduled to meet his Apple counterpart Tim Cook in a US court on Monday to resolve patent lawsuits over smartphones and tablets.
