Apec leaders 'committed to free trade, boosting economies' but they sound warning at summit about risks to global economic recovery, The Straits Times reports from Vladivostok, Russia. Chinese President Hu Jintao urges Japan to realise the seriousness of the tension over the Diaoyu Islands and stop plans for "nationalisation", according to China Daily. Meanwhile, Hu skips talks with Philippine President Benigno Aquino III at the Apec summit, the Philippine Daily Inquirer says. Amid the tensions, Seoul and Tokyo are moving to mend ties strained as they recognise the growing importance of bilateral cooperation over North Korean threats and other issues of mutual concern, notes The Korea Herald. In Thailand, flash floods hit several provinces in the lower North and upper Central regions after days of heavy rain, says The Nation.
