Fuji TV reported online on Thursday morning that it learned from a source in the Communist Party of China that the Japanese and Chinese governments were considering an exchange of New Year’s messages between Prime Minister Abe and Premier Li Keqiang for 2019 but this plan was canceled by the Chinese side. According to the network, the cancellation was perhaps in response to the Japanese government’s decision in December to effectively exclude Huawei and ZTE products from government procurement, noting that the cancellation may have an impact on the trend of improvement in bilateral relations.
