Japan and China, whose relations have been soured by disputes dating back to World War Two, hailed warming ties on Wednesday after agreeing to set up a security hotline to defuse possible maritime incidents that could spark tensions.

In an opening statement during a trilateral summit with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo, Moon said the recent inter-Korean summit has built the foundation for complete denuclearization and lasting peace on the peninsula.

Li arrived in Tokyo on Tuesday for an official visit to Japan and to attend the 7th China-Japan-South Korea leaders' meeting.

He stressed that the creation of the China-Japan-South Korea free trade zone would "benefit not only East Asia, but also [would] have an external effect and stimulate negotiations on regional economic integration between the three countries and ASEAN [Association of Southeast Asian Nations]".

The trilateral meeting was resumed after a two-and-a-half-year suspension.
