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

East Asian powers on Wednesday threw their weight behind breakneck diplomacy to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons, setting aside their differences on the process to endorse an intra-Korean deal.

Coming off his meeting on April 27 with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Moon said of Japan and China, "Amid the course toward peace on the Korean Peninsula, the support and cooperation of the two nations will definitely be necessary".

China, Japan and South Korea agreed Wednesday to cooperate in seeking the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe saying recent positive momentum must be matched by "concrete action" by North Korea.

We also look forward to the meeting between the U.S. and North Korea and will be pleased to see a meeting between North Korea and Japan and hope it would resolve issues of interest to Japan.

At the start of the 75-minute meeting, Abe said, "Japan, China and South Korea must cooperate with the worldwide community and strongly ask North Korea to take specific action" toward denuclearization, namely abandoning its weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missiles.

Li said, "We welcome the successful meeting between the leaders of South and North Korea".

North and South Korea are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a treaty.

Talking to ANI , BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra alleged the Congress' hand behind the fake voter IDs and demanded an investigation into it.

"Xi was originally sanguine about getting along with Trump, but the recent tariff move, which came as a surprise for him, awakened him to the reality that China has to fight America after all, and that it has to fix ties with Japan and embrace it under its wing", said Noriyuki Kawamura, a professor of Sino-Japanese relations at the Nagoya University of Foreign Studies.

During his meeting with Xi, Kim said the Korean Peninsula's denuclearisation was Pyongyang's "clear and consistent position".

Pointing out that the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative is creating new room for trilateral cooperation, Li said the three sides can carry out cooperation within a "China-Japan-South Korea+X" framework.

Abe said he is "looking forward to visiting China (again) at an appropriate time" following a request from Li.

Li is scheduled to remain in Japan until May 11.

He will meet Japanese Emperor Akihito on Thursday before flying to the northern island of Hokkaido, where he will attend a conference hosted by local political leaders.
