Sunday’s Mainichi highlighted remarks made on Saturday by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang during a private-sector conference on bilateral relations with Japan. Speaking on President Xi’s purported visit to Japan next spring, Wang said it will be an epoch-making event that will open a new era in Sino-Japanese ties. However, he also urged Japan to deal with the history and Taiwan issues properly to further advance bilateral relations. With the Trump administration apparently in mind, the top Chinese diplomat reportedly underscored the importance of mutual coordination by saying: “As responsible stakeholders, both China and Japan need to exercise a spirit of partnership in the face of ‘our country first’ policies and protectionism.”
