China, Japan and South Korea agreed to promote the use of their foreign exchange reserves to invest in each other's government bonds to strengthen regional cooperation and stave off the impact of the European debt crisis.

The statement was made after a meeting of the three countries’ central bank governors and finance ministers in Manila on Thursday.

The three countries also agreed to improve information sharing to further deepen regional ties.
