Why is China part of this? China is more relative to south east Asia rather than north east….

3 ( +6 / -3 )

Because if it was only South Korea and Japan it would be a bilateral summit. Also, look at a map. China's most northerly latitude is 53 degrees north. For comparison Japan's northern most point is 45 degrees.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Don't hold your breath waiting for the first meeting.

If and when China feels like it.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

to push for diverse cooperation projects in areas such as people-to-people exchange, trade, technology, public health, sustainable development and security,

China is only interested in getting hold of Japanese and South Korean advanced technology, and increasing any trade strangleholds they have. All the rest have no real meaning to China.

In other words S Korea, Japan and China agreed to make a statement about a summit nothing really planned. Lip service as usual!

Asia countries could be a great community like brothers or sisters helping each other under China's being the big brother. And if course with Russia, she is also an Asian country, an energy hub. Only if the explusion of U.S. military occupation forces. It was Imperial Japan's reckless aggression at China and World War2 that gave America coming to take over the first island chains and South East Asia.

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

But China, North Korea’s last major ally and biggest source of aid, is suspected of avoiding fully enforcing United Nations sanctions...

Actually China and Russia has abandoned all the sanctions of North Korea. Why should they? What North Korea has done wrong? The days of appeasement of America has gone and it should be gone.

Why Israel causing 10000 plus Palestinian innocent people deaths and ignoring all the calls from U.N. and America still sending bombs to that country, why America veto all the resolution at that country, why America stay mute and telling other countries to stay mute about Gaza crisis? Did North Korea killed 10000 plus innocent people in South Korea since the 1953 truce ?

If some country not playing the rules then why should the others ?

Asia countries could be a great community like brothers or sisters helping each other under China's being the big brother.

Who made China the big brother rather than the disgusting bloated corpse?

And if course with Russia, she is also an Asian country, an energy hub.

So much for the Wang Yi's plan for a race based club.

Only if the explusion of U.S. military occupation forces.

So only if Japan and SK agree to China's demands.

It was Imperial Japan's reckless aggression at China and World War2 that gave America coming to take over the first island chains and South East Asia.

And we will defend the ROC again if you keep pushing.

But China, North Korea’s last major ally and biggest source of aid, is suspected of avoiding fully enforcing United Nations sanctions...

Actually China and Russia has abandoned all the sanctions of North Korea.

Oh, so we can just decide to ignore UNSC resolutions now?

Why should they? What North Korea has done wrong?

They are making it very likely SK and Japan have the bomb. I guess you are okay with that.

The days of appeasement of America has gone and it should be gone.

Wishful thinking doesn't make it so.

Why Israel causing 10000 plus Palestinian innocent people deaths and ignoring all the calls from U.N. and America still sending bombs to that country, why America veto all the resolution at that country, why America stay mute and telling other countries to stay mute about Gaza crisis?

Why does Russia veto every single other resolution? It is their prerogative.

Did North Korea killed 10000 plus innocent people in South Korea since the 1953 truce ?

No, but they certainly did before the truce.

If some country not playing the rules then why should the others ?

Reign your dog Russia in and you might have a leg to stand on.

Considering the China risk, superficial negotiations with China, which we cannot trust at all, are necessary to some extent.

China is South Korea's main trading partner, and it is said that if China sneezes, South Korea will catch a cold. Until now, the two countries had a very close relationship as a semiconductor export destination, but China has developed its own semiconductors and no longer needs South Korean semiconductors. And South Korea's trade deficit continues to expand.

However, Japan is not running into a trade deficit and will continue to wean itself from dependence on China. This is because Japanese people will not do business in countries where country risk is too high.

There are countries in Asia such as Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines, and India that have strong feelings of rejection towards China, which continues to increase military spending.

There is no doubt that unless the Chinese Communist Party collapses or China splits internally, it will be a huge threat to such countries.

It is also a natural progression that a Chinese encirclement network like QUAD is formed.

North Korea continues its nuclear development in violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

Tens of thousands of South Koreans were taken to North Korea during the Korean War and have not returned to this day.

The problem of North Korean abductees in Japan has not been resolved.

It is natural that North Korea was involved in the assassination of Kim Jong-young overseas.

Not only that, but they are also actively stealing Bitcoins through unauthorized online access.

UN sanctions are a given, and criticizing them is the same as being complicit in a criminal act. I have to say that this is a very shameful act for a human being.
