Our priority should be to promote the joint research on a free trade area among the three countries and advance the negotiation process for investment agreements, he said.

"We hope the three countries will play a bigger role in promoting peace, stability and development in Asia as a whole," said Yang.

"We need to deepen cooperation in recycling economy, science and technology and environmental protection, and step up cultural and people-to-people exchanges," Yang told reporters.

He also noted that Vice Premier Wang Qishan will attend the China-Japan high-level economic dialogue later this year.
