Reference to East China Sea dropped

The regional leaders decided to drop the reference to the tension in East China Sea (territorial disputes between China and Japan and Japan and Korea) in order to promote economic cooperation. Territorial disputes should be addressed at bilateral level since it is more appropriate and effective. It is expected that the ASEAN Plus Three cooperation will be advanced to a new level with trust, confidence, and common interests. Economic cooperation and integration are the focus of this year ASEAN Summit and other related meetings.
