Japan, China agree on cooperation against trade protectionism

Asahi, Yomiuri, Nikkei, and Sankei wrote that Deputy Prime Minister Aso agreed with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He at their talks in Beijing on Thursday that Japan and China should cooperate against protectionist policies based on the view that trade protectionism benefits no country. According to Asahi, Aso told his Chinese counterpart that Japan will address trade issues within the framework of the WTO. According to a Finance Ministry official who is accompanying Aso, Liu explained to him the details of China’s recent trade talks with the United States, while Aso told the Chinese official about Tokyo’s trade discussions with Washington. Aso reportedly advised China to understand that the international community is concerned about China’s violation of intellectual property rights, which was cited by Washington as the reason for its high import tariffs on Chinese products.
