They voiced strong support for creating a favourable environment for realizing the dual goal of epidemic prevention and economic recovery, while gradually bringing bilateral cooperation back to normal.

Regarding the East Sea issue, they affirmed the importance of ensuring peace, stability, security, safety, and freedom of navigation and overflight in the sea, and peacefully settling disputes according to international law, including the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS 1982).
