In the speech, SG LEE briefly introduced the development of the trilateral cooperation mechanisms, achievements made in spite of the obstacles, and the role of the TCS in promoting the trilateral cooperation. He stressed that the three countries should “seek the greatest common divisor” rather than mainly focusing on divergences. He concluded the speech by calling upon the three countries to create a favorable environment with joint efforts to convene the Trilateral Summit in Japan within this year.
