Japan-China military hotline to be put in place next month

Asahi reported on Saturday on the disclosure by several sources involved in Sino-Japanese relations that Japan and China are likely to seal a formal accord on the launch of a communication mechanism between the PLA and the SDF designed to head off inadvertent confrontations in and above the East China Sea when Prime Minister Abe holds talks with Chinese Premier Li, who is expected to visit Tokyo for a trilateral summit with South Korea scheduled for May 9. The two nations’ military authorities will reportedly sign the official document immediately after the summit for implementation without delay.
