The annual two-day summit of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) countries is a rare chance for such a wide range of top leaders to be in the same room, and the typical pledges of amity and trade convergence are often balanced by tense sideline exchanges on festering geopolitical problems.

The gathering is the biggest event yet hosted by the Chinese president, who took office last year and who spotlighted his country's expanding world profile Sunday by declaring a bright future ahead for the vibrant Pacific Rim - with a confident China at its heart.US President Obama flew in still wounded by the Democrats' defeat in the mid-term US elections and with US-Russian relations in the deep freeze, while his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin arrived a day earlier and quickly signalled his desire for ever-warmer ties with an increasingly assertive China.


Xi and Abe met in Beijing's Great Hall of the People, the seat of Chinese power, in what the Japanese prime minister said was a "first step" towards repairing the fractured relationship between the world's second- and third-largest economies.
 

Beijing and Tokyo's historically frosty relations are at their lowest point in decades over competing claims to Japanese-controlled islets in the East China Sea that have raised the spectre of armed clashes.

Abe said he asked Xi to establish a hotline aimed at preventing clashes at sea.

"I asked him that we implement a maritime communication mechanism, and I think we will start working on concrete steps toward it," he told Japanese media in Beijing after the half-hour summit.

But a Japanese official said the islands were not specifically mentioned during the meeting, Japan's Kyodo news agency reported.

The two leaders were photographed shaking hands with uncomfortable expressions on their faces.

Russia, China's 'fruitful' friendship


No Obama-Putin meeting is known to be scheduled, but Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has vowed to confront the Russian strongman over Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which was brought down over eastern Ukraine in July, with 38 Australians among the 298 dead.Obama and Putin are attending APEC at a time when Russia is under Western economic sanctions over its seizure of Ukraine's Crimea region and role in that country's separatist war.

The West has accused pro-Russian rebels of blasting it out of the sky with a missile and Moscow of impeding investigations. Russia denies the accusations.

APEC brings into focus the developing big-power rivalry involving Washington, Beijing and Moscow.

Russia and China both regularly express impatience with a perceived American domination of world affairs and often move in tandem on the UN Security Council, vetoing or abstaining from US-led initiatives.

Putin and Xi met Sunday in Beijing, with the Chinese leader warmly calling for the once-bitter Cold War rivals to continue to "harvest" the fruits of their friendship.

"No matter the changes on the global arena, we should stick to the chosen path to expand and strengthen our comprehensive mutually fruitful cooperation," Xi said.

Putin said their cooperation was "very important for keeping the world within the framework of international law".

 

US expects 'candid' Obama-Xi meetings

China and the United States already have jousted in Beijing over differing visions of how to achieve Asia-Pacific trade integration, adding to persistent discord over commerce, human rights, cyber-espionage, and territorial disputes.

The White House has said it expects "candid and in-depth conversations" between Obama and Xi, who are due to have several meetings.

As well as the row with Japan - a US security ally Washington is bound by treaty to defend if attacked - Beijing's growing assertiveness in the South China Sea has also rankled rival claimants to its strategic waters.


Beijing is Pyongyang's closest ally, and the prisoner release could fuel speculation the sabre-rattling North may be willing to resume international, China-chaired talks on its nuclear programme.Another likely discussion topic between Xi and Obama is North Korea, following the surprise weekend release of two Americans who were imprisoned by the secretive state.

It should be all smiles, however, when the APEC leaders gather Monday for a "family photo", when they typically wear the host's national dress.

The event culminates Tuesday with a formal leaders' summit.

APEC kicks off a week of high-level summitry that will see Obama and other top leaders travel next to Myanmar for the East Asia Summit, followed by G20 talks in Brisbane, Australia.

China is hosting APEC for the first time since 2001, when it was still re-emerging as a world economic power.

But in a speech Sunday, Xi underlined how much has changed by offering his vision of an "Asia-Pacific dream", in which China's continued rise offers "infinite promise" to all.
