Asian equities fall as Chinese firms pull back after this week's rally

China Life Insurance, Tencent Holdings among losers

HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Asian shares outside of Japan declined Thursday following a pullback in Chinese companies.

The Nikkei Asia300 index slid 0.4% to 1,380.76. China Life Insurance and Tencent Holdings fell 0.5% each. An index of Chinese companies listed in Hong Kong, the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index, shed 0.4%. The gauge yesterday closed at near its highest in seven months, buoyed by the U.S.-China's interim deal announcement.
