Chinese Premier Li Qiang arrived in Seoul on Sunday to attend the ninth Trilateral Summit Meeting among China, Japan and South Korea from Sunday to Monday. Li had a meeting with South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on the day of his arrival, with Chinese experts saying the three major economies in East Asia will make pragmatic efforts to make sure the economic development and integration of the region will not be affected by bloc confrontation and geopolitical crises.    

The three countries are currently facing different challenges due to the disruption of the global supply chain and other impacts, so they all have a sincere motivation and realistic desire to resume the trilateral mechanism at this point, as they want to seek cooperation with each other and prevent potential instability by boosting senior-level communication between the governments, analysts noted.

According to the Xinhua News Agency, the trilateral summit resumes more than four years after it was last held in China's Chengdu in 2019. Li, together with the leaders of Japan and South Korea, will attend key events including the trilateral summit meeting and the China-Japan-South Korea business summit where they will exchange views on trilateral cooperation.
