All papers wrote that senior officials of Japan and China held maritime talks in Hiroshima on Sept. 14-15 and agreed to swiftly resume discussions by defense officials on the early implementation of a “maritime and aerial communication mechanism” between the two nations. However, Tokyo and Beijing failed to agree to resume their suspended talks on joint gas field development in the East China Sea. The two nations agreed to hold the next round of the senior-level talks by the end of this year. According to Mainichi, Japan and China agreed to set up a framework for a dialogue on marine debris at an early date with the goal of conducting joint research in 2017.
