Korea, China Agree to Normalize Cooperation, Exchanges

Korea, China Agree to Normalize Cooperation, Exchanges

(STAND-UP) "But before that, a separate meeting between President Moon and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang here in Manila on the sidelines of the ASEAN-related summits will show whether the strongest steel is indeed forged in the hottest fire".

Abe replied: "I want us to strongly move forward the development of a strategic, mutually beneficial relationship".

The South Korea-China summit, the first of its kind in four months, marked what many called the start of normalizing ties between the two countries.

The two countries agreed to normalize their ties in a joint statement issued by their foreign ministries on October 31.

Moon's talks with the Chinese premier will further highlight the improvement in South Korea-China relations, Seoul officials have said.

"President Moon said the most important task at a time when the North Korean nuclear and missile issues are becoming a global threat is to prevent North Korean provocations and stably maintain the situation, while working to bring North Korea to the dialogue table through all available diplomatic means", the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said.

Li said the Seoul-Beijing relations were already facing "active" or positive changes.

Also on Saturday, the US and South Korea launched a joint naval drill in a show of strength against the North's leader Kim Jong-un.

How to deal with the South China Sea issue was also a point of contention at the ASEAN summit meeting held Monday. But Japan, whose relations with both neighbors have often been fraught, appeared to make little progress toward its hopes of hosting a trilateral summit by the end of the year.

He also proposed resuming high-level economic dialogue to discuss detailed measures to fix the countries' ties, as well as their trade and economic relations.

"Prime Minister [Li] said the countries will inevitably face sensitive issues as the China-South Korea relations develop, but that the development of practical cooperation between China and South Korea is very bright", Yoon told a press briefing.
