Chinese Premier Calls for New Progress of China-Japan Ties

Japan and China agree on security hotline after a decade of talks Chinese Premier Calls for New Progress of China-Japan Ties

Forty years ago, the older generation of leaders from China and Japan showed great farsight and strategic resolve by concluding the treaty, said Li.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang Thursday said that he hoped that China and Japan would carry forward the spirit of the China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship to push for new progress in bilateral relations. The pact provides for meetings between both nations' defence officials and a mechanism for their naval vessels to communicate at sea to avert maritime incidents.

China had also resisted Japan's insistence that the agreement should not cover the territorial waters surrounding the islets, controlled by Japan.

They expressed confidence in the improvement in bilateral ties and believed that the ties will continue the health and stable development.

China is willing to work with the LDP and Komeito to create a new future for China-Japan relations after all the rough times, the premier said.

Talks on the hotline had stalled in 2012, after the Japanese government bought the disputed islands, known in Tokyo as the Senkaku, and in Beijing as the Diaoyu, from a private landowner.

Railroads connecting them to China and South Korea would be a good start, certainly.

But signs of warming ties emerged late a year ago, when Abe attended a celebration marking China's National Day at its embassy in Tokyo, and expressed interest in joining Beijing's "Belt and Road Initiative" spanning Asia, Europe and Africa.

In the speech, Li also said China will make efforts to protect the global economy by promoting free trade, an apparent reference to protectionist moves promoted by U.S. President Donald Trump.

The two sides are also expected to jointly explore business cooperation deals in third countries.

"But cooperating under the belt and road plan will be good for Japan too, because it's an opportunity for Japan to reach broader markets through this New Silk Road".

"Cooperation will be good for both China and Japan, as long as it's honest".
