NHK reported this morning on a meeting between Foreign Minister Kono and his Chinese counterpart Wang held at the UN headquarters in New York on Thursday. They agreed to accelerate coordination for Prime Minister Abe’s planned visit to China next month so that it will produce concrete results. The network said that during the fourth meeting between the two ministers this year Wang reportedly stressed the need to carefully maintain the momentum for rapprochement between the two nations and to develop the Japan-China relationship in a stable manner and on a long-term basis. The two ministers also reportedly agreed to fully implement the UNSC sanctions resolutions on North Korea in order to achieve its denuclearization. When Kono asked for China’s cooperation in dealing with North Korea’s ship-to-ship transfers in waters near China, Wang reportedly pledged a tough response.
