Wen meets Japanese, South Korean leaders in separate meetings

CHINESE Premier Wen Jiabao met South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso at Dusit Thani hotel in Pattaya, Thailand, today in separate meetings.

The leaders were here for the summit between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit and China, Japan and South Korea and the East Asian summit.

The summit was scheduled to be convened today and tomorrow but was canceled due to political unrest in the country.

During Wen's meeting with Lee around noon time, Wen said China and South Korea have kept frequent contacts, and the bilateral relations are getting closer.

China, Japan and South Korea have established partnership relations when leaders from the three countries met in Japan last year, deepening mutual understanding and strengthening cooperation, Wen said.

Lee agreed that friendly cooperative relations between the two countries have been established and political mutual trust has been strengthened.

Wen met Aso later today at the same hotel.
