The two leaders will set forth in the declaration their resolve to pursue mutual cooperation as “eternal neighbors.” The five-point document will reportedly outline Xi’s plan to travel to Japan next spring as a state guest, the two nations’ mutual efforts to make the East China Sea as a “sea of peace, friendship, and cooperation, their commitment to taking a coordinated approach on the economic front, and increased communication between the two peoples through various exchange programs.
