They also pledged to cooperate more on shipbuilding, education and seven other areas, while working towards a free trade deal on the service and investment sectors.
They also agreed that now is the time to establish lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula, adding that North Korea and the U.S. need to resume talks soon to achieve the regime's denuclearization.
