The US President raised North Korea's nuclear capability with Australia's Prime Minister Martin Turnbull and Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during his tour of Asia.

During the 20th ASEAN-Japan Summit which was held at the Philippine International Convention Center on November 13, Japan Prime Minister Sinzo Abe vowed to deepen cooperation with ASEAN countries in various areas such as maritime security, defense, trade, infrastructure development, combating terrorism, disaster risk reduction and cultural exchanges.

Abe told reporters about the agreement just after meeting with Putin in the Vietnamese coastal city of Danang.

The Japanese government hopes to realize an Abe visit to China and a visit by the Chinese president to Japan next year.

Li pointed out that China and Japan, as close neighbors and the world's important economies, should tap their complementary advantages and enhance economic cooperation, which is of positive significance to the economic development of East Asia and the global economic recovery.

Abe appealed to Li for China - North Korea's primary diplomatic and economic backer - to play a "more constructive" role, the spokesman said.

This year is the 45th anniversary of the normalization of ties between Japan and China, while next year will mark 40 years since the signing of a bilateral peace and friendship treaty.

Japan, said Abe, is willing to treat China as a partner instead of a threat, strengthen bilateral high-level exchanges, and consolidate the momentum for improvement in the bilateral ties based on the principle of building the bilateral strategic relationship for mutual benefit. He also proposed that Japan and China cooperate in doing business in third countries.

Abe's unprecedented meeting with both Xi and Li in such a short period of time is a sign of improving relations.

While Tokyo has taken pains to stress that the "free and open" message is not specifically aimed at China, the importance placed on coordination with each of the 10 members of ASEAN reflects Abe's desire to assert a place for Japan in the face of Beijing's rising regional influence.
