China, Japan and South Korea are neighbors that cannot be moved away and partners that cannot be separated. To build a mature, stable and healthy bilateral and multilateral relationship requires the joint efforts of the three countries. We should, as always, increase understanding and promote exchanges with a high sense of responsibility, objective, fair and comprehensive reports. It is hoped that the media colleagues of the three countries will focus more on young people, provide assistance for the younger generation to build friendship bridges, and work together for the friendship between China, Japan and South Korea from generation to generation, and for the lasting peace, stability and prosperity of Northeast Asia.
——Li Zhengyu, deputy director of the International Department of Xinhua News Agency
It is of great significance for Japan, China and South Korea to strengthen economic exchanges and cooperation, give full play to their strengths, and pool their wisdom to solve the social structural problems we all face, such as aging. Economic and trade cooperation is the "ballast stone" of Japan-China-ROK relations, and the media should promote economic and trade cooperation among the three countries by providing useful reports.
——Hirori Momoi, China General Director of Japan's "Nihon Keizai Shimbun"
South Korea, China, and Japan can jointly organize cultural activities such as food culture festivals, film festivals, and art exhibitions to form a good public opinion atmosphere and promote cultural exchanges. In this process, the media should take active actions to create a good atmosphere, create more news reports that can resonate and convey positive energy, and promote exchanges and cooperation among the three countries.
——Sun Il-sun, director general of Korea's "Daily Economic News" in Beijing
People-to-people bond is the deepest, longest and most basic form of interconnection, which has provided an important boost to the development and cooperation of China, Japan and South Korea. The media of the three countries should fulfill their social responsibilities with a more active attitude, make good use of the common cultural heritage and common value foundation among China, Japan and South Korea, build a bridge of people-to-people exchanges, and pave the way for spiritual exchanges.
——Chen Zhiming, Director of the International Department of China Daily
Japan, China and South Korea are friendly neighbors separated by a strip of water and have close ties in various fields such as culture, economy and society. Direct communication is crucial to enhancing the friendship between the people of the three countries. As the saying goes, it is better to see once than to hear a hundred times. Communicating directly with local people in the other country will help to enhance mutual understanding and promote friendship between the people.
——Nigai Xianhong, Director of China General Bureau of Japan's "China Japan/Tokyo Shimbun"
Journalists from China, Japan and South Korea are recorders and disseminators of trilateral cooperation, as well as participants and builders. We should actively focus on the highlights of China-Japan-Korea cultural cooperation and continue to tell good stories about cultural exchanges; we should give full play to the advantages of media resources and use media power to promote more cultural exchange activities; gather the consensus of "Generation Z" and give full play to the youth of China-Japan-Korea cultural friendship and cooperation strength.
——Xie Rongbin, deputy editor-in-chief of Global Times
Deepening people-to-people and cultural exchanges and mutual learning is an important way to eliminate barriers and misunderstandings and promote people-to-people mutual understanding. The media should dig out more interesting and rich news stories on the basis of reporting objective facts. At the same time, encourage the use of scientific and technological means such as Metaverse to strengthen folk cultural exchanges, enhance national feelings, and promote people-to-people bonds.
——Li Bachan, Director General of Korea's "Chosun Ilbo" in Beijing
The media of China, Japan and South Korea should implement the important consensus reached by the leaders with richer, more pragmatic and effective actions, and use in-depth, wide-ranging and warm reports to convey the message of enhancing political mutual trust, deepening mutually beneficial cooperation, consolidating non-governmental friendship, and properly managing differences. Positive energy will enhance the sentiment among the people of China, Japan and South Korea, and promote the in-depth development of bilateral and multilateral relations and the steady and long-term development.
