Get the picture in before things unravel. I hope at the very least the fact that they could even meet will spur further meetings in the future. I doubt this one will get very far.

Looks like Li Keqiang is doing everything he can to not touch Abe, and is standing as far back as possible.

So can we call this a East Asian climate change? Enjoy the warmth until a big nationalist storm front moves in.

PM Abe is likely to emerge as a clear hero out of the current summit meetings in Seoul.

That was the most uncomfortable handshake I have ever witnessed. Neither Abe, nor the Li Keqiang wanted anything to do with each other!

It's all a bit like watching a rather cheap Hollywood movie.

That's remind something but I don't know where........"It can only be called fate... That here, I would again gather the three with the crests... That I should lay my hand on that which grants the wishes of the beholder. That when power, wisdom, and courage come together, the gods would have no choice but to come down... The power of the gods... The Triforce! He who touches it will have whatever he desires granted!" — Ganondorf

They all delivered speeches, if Li was last, maybe he smiled too much already.

No word on why they're resuming the summits? What changed?
