  • China Japan draw closer as Asia's diplomatic order shifts

In an opening statement during a trilateral summit with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo, Moon said the recent inter-Korean summit has built the foundation for complete denuclearization and lasting peace on the peninsula.

The hotline will take effect on June 8, according to broadcaster NHK.

They also agreed to push forward regular meetings between defence officials and to set up a communication mechanism to avoid maritime incidents when their naval vessels meet in disputed waters.

Abe said regional-level exchanges have kept the bond between the 2 countries alive regardless of the relations between the central governments.

Li arrived in Tokyo on Tuesday for an official visit to Japan and to attend the 7th China-Japan-South Korea leaders' meeting.

As two of the world's major economies, China and Japan should make further efforts to safeguard the multilateral trading system and free trade by fighting against rising protectionism, Li said.

Forty years later, the two sides should continue to follow the spirit of the treaty, said the premier.




South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Chinese PM Li Keqiang have agreed that they want to see a guarantee of economic aid for North Korea if the nation agrees to denuclearize.

During a meeting with Tadamori Oshima, speaker of the House of Representatives in Japan's parliament, or Diet, the premier said President Xi Jinping sent a clear message to the world at the 2018 Boao Forum for Asia in Hainan province that China will firmly open its door wider.

The two sides are also expected to jointly explore business cooperation deals in third countries.

This is the best way to commemorate the signing of China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship, Li told a reception marking the 40th anniversary of the treaty in Tokyo.

"But cooperating under the belt and road plan will be good for Japan too, because it's an opportunity for Japan to reach broader markets through this New Silk Road".

"Cooperation will be good for both China and Japan, as long as it's honest".
