Three-Way Summit to Help Mend Ties

Three-Way Summit to Help Mend Ties

Leaders from South Korea, China and Japan said they pledged at a rare three-way summit on Sunday to boost exchanges and economic cooperation, and repair ties badly strained by history and territorial disputes.
The one-day summit in Seoul was the first of its kind in more than three years. High-level contact between Tokyo and its two Asian neighbors nosedived after hawkish Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe took office in late 2012. Beijing and Seoul see Abe as whitewashing Japan’s wartime atrocities, AP reported.
A joint statement issued after the meeting said they have agreed to resolve history-related issues and improve ties by “facing history squarely and advancing toward the future”.
