They emphasized the importance of the full and effective implementation of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the Eastern Sea (DOC) in its entirety, while highlighting the need to strengthen mutual trust, exercise self-control in conducting activities that may complicate or exacerbate disputes and affect peace and stability, and avoid actions that may further complicate the situation. They welcomed the ongoing efforts to strengthen cooperation between ASEAN and China, as well as the progress of substantive negotiations toward the rapid conclusion of an effective and substantive Code of Conduct in the East Sea (COC); and the initiative to accelerate COC negotiations, including the proposal to develop guidelines to expedite the rapid conclusion of an effective and substantive COC.
