PATTAYA, Thailand, April 11 (Xinhua) -- China, Japan and South Korea agreed here Saturday to continue pushing forward the Six-Party talks aimed at realizing denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
The consensus was reached when Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso and South Korean President Lee Myung-bak met here to discuss the recent rocket launch by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
Discussions about related issues should be conducive to maintaining the progress of the Six-Party talks, peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and in Northeast Asia, Wen said.
Any action that may further complicate the situation should be avoided, he emphasized.
The three leaders also agreed to strengthen cooperation between China, Japan and South Korea and push forward their cooperation with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
The three leaders expected to meet in China later this year for the second summit of Chinese, Japanese and South Korean leaders.
