Japan, China to reach agreement on maritime and air communication mechanism

Sunday’s Mainichi gave top play to the disclosure by multiple Japanese and Chinese government officials that the two governments are making arrangements to officially reach an agreement on launching a maritime and air communication mechanism between the two nations when Prime Minister Abe meets with Chinese Premier Li in May in Tokyo. Noting that a trilateral summit between Japan, China, and South Korea is slated for May 9 in Tokyo, the paper said Abe’s meeting with Li is likely to be held before or after the trilateral summit. The daily reported that although the two nations were at odds over how to describe the areas surrounding the Senkaku Islands, they are likely to prioritize the signing of an agreement without specifically referring to such areas. Monday’s Yomiuri ran a similar article.
