China, Japan Agree To Further Improve Ties, Expand Cooperation

TOKYO - Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Monday agreed that both sides should work together to further improve bilateral ties and expand cooperation.
Wang said that China and Japan are important neighbors and bilateral relationship has gone through some twists and turns in recent years, which affected communication and cooperation of the two sides in various areas.
He said China attaches importance to the positive messages sent by Abe on improving bilateral relationship on a number of occasions since last year, and it is hoped that with joint efforts of both sides, his visit could become an important step for bilateral relationship to return to normal track.
Wang said that the momentum of improvement in bilateral ties did not come by easily and should be cherished, and with a better and more stable relationship, the two sides could have closer exchanges and extended cooperation, which would be in the interests of people in both countries as well as the region.
The two sides should tap potential driving forces so as to upgrade the bilateral trade and economic cooperation to a new level, Wang said. (Xinhua)
