VIENTIANE: Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing yesterday reiterated China's support for the strengthening of regional co-operation in East Asia.

Li made the remark during an ASEAN+3 meeting in Laos, featuring foreign ministers from all 10 ASEAN countries along with those from China, the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Japan.

ASEAN, as the initiator of East Asian co-operation, should play a major role in building partnerships between East Asian nations, said Li.
