China calls for advancing free trade talks with South Korea, Japan

The situation on the Korean peninsula dominated discussions at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in the central Vietnamese city of Da Nang.

During Saturday's summit, Moon and Xi also agreed to quickly normalise bilateral exchanges in all sectors, Yoon added, repeating what was said in the agreement announced last month when the two countries agreed to end a year-long standoff over the deployment of a USA anti-missile system.

It's for this reason that the global community must pressure North Korea into talks as soon as possible, including through use of sanctions, Moon said Tuesday, per Reuters.

For his part, Moon said that bilateral ties are now standing at a new starting point.

South Korean President Moon Jae-In sees a community-connected future between South Korea and Southeast Asian nations as a blueprint for major prosperity for both his country and ASEAN.

President Duterte has urged South Korea to invest more in the Philippines as he vowed to further strengthen ties between the two countries.

"China stands ready to work with relevant parties to speed up negotiations of the China-Japan-South Korea FTA", Li told a regional summit in Manila, Xinhua said.

The leaders "shared the view on the need to stably manage the current security conditions on the Korean peninsula in relation to North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes, and agreed to seek to peacefully resolve the North Korean nuclear issue through dialogue", the office said.

South Korea is committed to cooperating with the Association of South East Asian Nations (Asean) in improving connectivity in the region.

But Cui Zhiying, an global relations professor at Tongji University in Shanghai, took a more cautious view.

"I wish we will quickly put the China-Korea relations on the normal track through the joint efforts of the two countries", he said through his interpreter, according to Blue House pool reports. He added that he hoped China would continue to ratchet up the pressure on its restive neighbour.
