The cooperation among China, Japan and the ROK, an important part of East Asian cooperation, has been developing soundly with the efforts of the three countries, Wen said when meeting with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan.

The three countries should attach strategic importance to the cooperation among them and steer it in the right direction. Efforts should be made to constantly push forward the cooperation by promoting dialogues, boosting mutual trust and resolving differences, he said.

Wen proposed that the three countries push for the completion of the joint study on the China-Japan-ROK free trade area (FTA) by the government, industry and academia by 2012 as planned.

He also proposed that the three countries observe the principle of pragmatism and flexibility to properly resolve the differences and conclude a tripartite investment agreement at an early date.

The three sides should also boost cooperation in science and technological innovation in key sectors such as energy conservation, environment protection, new energy resources and renewable energy, he said.
