China’s top diplomat Yang Jiechi, a member of the Political Bureau of the Chinese Communist Party’s Central Committee, met with national security adviser Shotaro Yachi in the town of Karuizawa, Nagano Prefecture, on May 16.


They are believed to have held final discussions on a summit meeting between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping, who will visit Japan to attend the meeting of the Group of 20 major and emerging economies to be held in Osaka in June. Japan’s plan is for the prime minister to explain his desire to hold a summit with North Korea and try to obtain China’s cooperation.


Yang is also scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Abe and Foreign Minister Taro Kono in Tokyo on May 17.
