On the issue of South China Sea, both sides agreed that the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea (DOC) must be implemented fully and effectively in order to transform the South China Sea into a "permanent" sea of peace, stability, friendship and cooperation for mutual benefits and interests.

Fu visited Cambodia in order to attend the opening ceremony of the workshop on the 10th anniversary of the DOC, which was held on Thursday morning.
