BEIJING — State Councilor Yang Jiechi met on April 28 with former Prime Minister of the Republic of Korea (ROK) Goh Kun and Toshihiro Nikai, Chairman of the General Council of Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party.

Yang said China is willing to work with the two countries while facing up to history and looking toward the future, strengthening political mutual trust, expanding trade and economic cooperation, promoting economic integration, and increasing people-to-people exchanges and cultural cooperation to promote sound, stable and sustainable development in trilateral cooperation.

Goh and Nikai are in Beijing for the first public diplomacy forum among the three countries as well as a forum for trilateral cooperation.

China, the ROK and Japan resumed trilateral summits in 2015 after three years of diplomatic deadlock.
