Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe has met foreign ministers from China, South Korea and Japan in Tokyo.

Abe said the total economic output of the three Asian neighbors accounts for around one-fifth of the global economy, adding that cooperation is crucial. He said he hoped the meeting would pave the way for future talks between the three leaders later this year.
