Agree to do VS Share views to do

Hey guys, I am translating a memorandum of understanding on China-South Korea cooperation.
The South Korean side changed "China and South Korea have agreed to cooperate..." into "China and South Korea have shared views to cooperate..."
I can't tell the differences between these two expressions.
Does "have shared views" mean the two countries have exchanged their views on cooperation or have the same view which is to cooperate with each other?
If it is the latter, then the two expressions are the same. Is that correct?
Hope native English speakers could see this thread. Thanks in advance!:)
