Japan’s Shinzo Abe To Meet With China’s Xi Jinping

Japan to sign peace treaty with Russia, Abe says

In their meeting, Xi told Abe that "interdependence between the two countries is deepening by the day", and pledged to increase economic cooperation, according to Communist Party mouthpiece the People's Daily.

As expected, Abe invited Xi to visit Japan in coming months.

Possibly the most significant China-related event this fall.

He said, as democracies, the two countries have shared values and they seek peace and prosperity for all.

Both countries are neighbours and partners, and will not become a threat to each other, Abe said after meeting with President Xi Jinping on Friday in the first full-scale Sino-Japanese summit since 2011.

He called on the two sides to cooperate closely in the worldwide arena, expand common interests, promote regional economic integration, jointly combat global challenges, safeguard multilateralism and uphold free trade and construct an open world economy.

Abe responded that Japan believes the two countries should take a free and fair trade system to "a new level".

Sloane Stephens and Kiki Bertens , who are both 1-0 in the Red Group, were playing in the second match on Wednesday. The 21-year-old then rallied to break again and retain some hope of a comeback win in a deciding set.

While anxious about China's growing naval power, Japan is also keen for closer economic ties with its biggest trading partner, but it must manage that rapprochement without upsetting its key security ally, the US. "We need to nail down a date now", he said.

Li Keqiang, premier of China's State Council, also praised the "bright future" of cooperation between the world's second and third largest economies.

Relations between China and Japan slumped in 2012 when Tokyo launched a campaign to nationalise the disputed Diaoyu, or Senkaku, Islands in the East China Sea.

This was announced by the Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe at the opening session of the local Parliament, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to RBC.

Both nations responded by increasing their military deployment in the disputed waters.

"That is worth cherishing by both sides", Xi said.

But growing uncertainty in the two countries' respective ties with the United States have pushed the traditional rivals closer. Ultimately, China hopes to work things out with all its neighbors so that it can concentrate its diplomatic energies on rapidly deteriorating Sino-U.S. relations.

Kelly was arrested after police responded to a call about a man who'd stumbled onto their property dressed in a cowboy costume. Kelly appeared in court on Tuesday morning, and his case is scheduled to be heard on November 8.

It was unclear, what specific rights issues Abe raised.

Abe said on Friday that bilateral relations with China are at an "historic turning point" and that he expects new possibilities in industries such as infrastructure, logistics, healthcare and finance.

As this year marks the 40th anniversary of the signing of the China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship, it provides a good opportunity for the two sides to review the important commitment made 40 years ago and the development of relations over the past 40 years, said Takahara.

Xi reiterated the importance of keeping promises, noting that China and Japan should "act on the basis of their four political documents and consensus, deal with problems and differences constructively, so as to maintain the political foundation guiding healthy development of bilateral ties".

Japan has been targeted by USA tariffs too, though much less so than China.

"The Trump administration's economic nationalism and trade protectionism are a leading driver to improved ties between Beijing and Tokyo", said Zhu Feng, an Asia expert at Nanjing University.

"Although Prime Minister Abe was disliked by many Chinese people, he has effectively sent friendly messages to China in recent years, and successfully waited for the best timing".
