Abe Hails Fresh Start to Japan-China Ties

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping hailed a “fresh start” to the relationship between the countries after a meeting in Vietnam that saw them agree to work more closely on North Korea. The leaders met on the sidelines of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in the Vietnamese resort city of Danang, Reuters reported. Ties between China and Japan, the world’s second- and third-largest economies, have been plagued by a long-running territorial dispute over a cluster of East China Sea islets. “At the end of the meeting, Xi said this is a meeting that marks a fresh start of relations between Japan and China. I totally feel the same way,” Abe told reporters. Abe said he has proposed a visit to China at an appropriate time, which would then be followed by a Xi visit to Japan.
