South Korea, China, Japan Agree To Maintain Overall Stability Despite Differences

At the first three-way meeting in four and a half years, China, Japan and South Korea have a greed to maintain overall stability in spite of the growing geopolitical and economic tensions, especially between China and Japan, which has been moving fully into the orbit of the U.S.-backed “China containment."
The meeting emphasized economic issues in working out ways to move forward.

The three countries agreed to a joint statement calling for continued collaboration in the economic, social, and people-to-people areas.
