Abe’s China visit expected to promote ties, boost cooperation

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be visiting Japan this weekend for an annual summit with his counterpart Shinzo Abe and the proposed Acquisition and Cross Servicing Agreement between the two militaries is on the agenda

While Abe is attempting to focus attention at home on his diplomatic achievements in the summit to buoy his administration, China is attempting to get Japan on-side as Beijing contends with a trade war with the United States. Furthermore, Japan would like to take advantage of China's huge population.

Abe, for his part, reiterated the importance of free, fair, and rules-based trade.

Efforts in advancing China-Japan ties should "persevere unremittingly to prevent the appearance of new twists and turns" so that previous efforts did not go to waste, said Li at a joint briefing with Abe on Friday.

Some other users urged caution during Mr Abe's visit, accusing an "ambitious" Japan of being a two-faced neighbour.

Hsiesh noted that information now available suggests Japan and China will discuss cooperation in the fields of security and finance, and that Abe is likely to invite Xi Jinping personally to attend the June 2019 G20 summit in Osaka.

Mr Abe said their two countries were playing "an indispensable role in the economic development of not just Asia but the world".

It's taken almost seven years, but a Japanese leader is making an official visit to China for bilateral talks for the first time since late 2011. At the forum, Abe took the opportunity to once again emphasize the need to follow global standards for infrastructure projects and to take into account the financial position of recipient countries.

The move triggered anti-Japan demonstrations across China, and things worsened after Abe - who was subsequently described as an "unwelcome person" - visited the controversial Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, which commemorates Japan's 2.5 million war dead. For Japan, the withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade pact by the Trump administration sent shock waves through Japan's government offices in Kasumigaseki.

The discussions between Japan and China might also be an opportunity for Tokyo to act as a bridge between the United States and China.

That came after teams had been contacting the Raiders about a deal since the offseason, and after the aforementioned Eagles offer. But we also have to give Gruden and McKenzie a tip of the cap for their patience in getting the deal they wanted.

Japanese firms including big auto companies like Toyota hope to see normalised ties with China so they can compete with USA and European rivals, while Beijing expects Tokyo's endorsement of its ambitious Belt and Road programme, an initiative that Chinese President Xi Jinping hopes will further boost trade and transport links with other countries.

Perhaps one of the most important shifts in the ties was Japan's announcement that it was officially ending 40 years of development aid to China, and that from this point forward Tokyo and Beijing would look to work together on development aid and pursue a new type of relationship. "The two countries have been without a peace treaty for more than 70 years", he said.

The last Japanese prime minister to make a bilateral visit to China was Yoshihiko Noda in December 2011.

"Coordination and cooperation between China and Japan will help curb trade protectionism in the world while providing a stable and predictable policy environment for cooperation between enterprises", said Jin.

"We have set up a new mechanism of cooperation between China and Japan in third party markets".

The incident prompted anti-Japanese riots in China, and kicked off a frosty spell that has only recently begun to thaw.

The two sides should effectively implement the consensus that they are partners rather than mutual threats, facilitate positive interactions, and deepen mutual political trust, Xi said. They are also expected to discuss North Korea and the U.S.

Mr Abe told reporters in Tokyo before flying to Beijing: "Through this visit, I want to elevate ties to a new level".

"Abe is thinking of a long time frame, of building a framework where China and Japan can work together and live together as neighbors without conflict", Vogel said.
