The leaders are expected to focus on cooperation on North Korea's nuclear threats and ways to normalize their ties strained by a year-long feud over Seoul's decision to allow for deployment of a United States missile defense system.

Abe said Xi had told him the meeting marked a "new start of Japan-China relations".

The two were meeting on the sidelines of the APEC summit of Asia Pacific leaders in the Vietnamese city of Danang.

President Moon Jae-in and Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to hold a third bilateral summit next month in China.

There have been several reports filed on social media, and on the top Apple related blogs and chat forums on the web. However, in both cases, the iPhone X users reported that simply locking and unlocking the phone solves the issue.

Abe said he proposed to visit China at an appropriate time, which would then be followed by a Xi visit to Japan. Moon also asked the Chinese leader to visit the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games in South Korea next year, and Xi responded, "I will make efforts to visit South Korea".

The leaders "shared the view on the need to stably manage the current security conditions on the Korean peninsula in relation to North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes, and agreed to seek to peacefully resolve the North Korean nuclear issue through dialogue", the office said. "Just as South Korea stands firm on the comfort women issue and continues to deal with it separately even while seeking to fix relations with Japan, this only means China is using a two-track strategy on THAAD".

"Our military has taken in a North Korean soldier after he crossed from a North Korea post towards our Freedom House", the statement said, referring to a building on the South side of the village which is bisected by the border. "We hope the trilateral summit will resume soon", he said. "Since China has not retracted its official position that THAAD damages its strategic interests, the THAAD issue continues to simmer and could still boil over under the right circumstances", said Lee Hui-ok, director of the Sungkyun Institute of China Studies.
