On the eve of his official visit to Indonesia, South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol emphasized on September 5 that trilateral cooperation between China, Japan and South Korea should get back on track.
Yoon Suk Yeol mentioned the relationship between ASEAN and China, Japan and South Korea (10+3), saying that the trilateral cooperation between China, Japan and South Korea should also get back on track. As the rotating presidency of the trilateral consultation mechanism among the governments of China, Japan and South Korea, South Korea will make every effort to activate trilateral cooperation. If the cooperation among the three countries is revitalized, the cooperation among the “10+3” will also be injected with greater impetus, which will further strengthen the “central status of ASEAN.”
On August 31, Wang Yi, member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and Foreign Minister, had a telephone conversation with South Korean Foreign Minister Park Jin at request. Wang Yi expressed the hope that South Korea will strengthen strategic autonomy, resist various anti-globalization operations and “decoupling and breaking links”, deepen mutually beneficial cooperation between the two countries in various fields, and better benefit the two peoples. China supports South Korea in playing an active role in promoting trilateral cooperation as the chairman of China-Japan-ROK cooperation.
Yoon Suk Yeol has visited Indonesia and India successively since September 5, attending the ASEAN series of summits and the Group of Twenty (G20) summit respectively for seven days. During the meeting, Yoon Suk Yeol will hold talks with leaders from Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Cambodia, Cook Islands, India, Spain, Argentina, Mauritius and other countries.
