Luo Zhaohui expressed, since the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, China, Japan and the ROK have supported one another and conducted close cooperation, achieving positive results in fighting the virus and bringing production and life back to normal. The Chinese side is willing to make joint efforts with the ROK, continue to advance trilateral and international anti-pandemic cooperation and support the World Health Organization in playing its leading role; based on China-ROK cooperation, both sides will open "fast lanes" for personnel exchanges among the three countries and "green channels" for the flow of goods to maintain the stability of industrial and supply chains; and both countries need to speed up the China-Japan-ROK free trade zone negotiations to lead the economic recovery of East Asia as soon as possible. The Chinese side supports the ROK side in leveraging its role as the presidency of China-Japan-ROK cooperation to ensure the success of the 9th China-Japan-ROK Summit and push cooperation among the three countries for new progress.

Kim Gunn spoke highly of China's achievements in COVID-19 containment and economic recovery and expected to further deepen ROK-China cooperation across the board. The ROK side will act upon the consensus reached at the summit last year and intensify communication with China and Japan, promote trilateral cooperation in all fields and make active and sound preparations for this year's summit.

Underlining the vital significance of the Special ASEAN Plus Three Summit on COVID-19, both sides agreed to beef up cooperation to jointly propel the implementation of the special summit's outcomes.
