Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi will attend a series of foreign ministers' meetings running from 21 to 23 July on Indonesia's resort island of Bali, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei announced Thursday at a regular press conference.

The foreign ministers' meetings include ones between China and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN); ASEAN and China, Japan and the Republic of Korea (ROK); as well as unofficial consultation between foreign ministers regarding the East Asia Summit and the ASEAN Regional Forum.

Hong said the foreign ministers who attend the meetings would exchange views on regional and international issues of common concern, make proposals for and review the 10+1 (ASEAN plus China) and 10 plus 3 (ASEAN plus China, ROK and Japan) cooperation, and discuss issues concerning the future development of the East Asian Summit as well as the ASEAN Regional Forum.

According to Hong, Yang would articulate China's proposal to step up 10 plus 1 and 10 plus 3 cooperation, China's views on the Asia-Pacific security situation and the structure of the regional cooperation, and China's stance on the future development of the East Asia Summit and the ASEAN Regional Forum.

Yang will attend the meetings at the invitation of his Indonesian counterpart Marty Natalegawa.
