China, Japan boost ties

Kuwait Times - - International -

TOKYO: Asian ri­vals China and Japan yes­ter­day pledged a “new start­ing point” for bi­lat­eral ties, vow­ing close co-oper­a­tion amid a flurry of diplo­macy on the North Korean mis­sile threat and global trade ten­sions. Wel­com­ing Chi­nese For­eign Min­is­ter Wang Yi for a rare three-day visit, Ja­panese Premier Shinzo Abe called for warmer re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries and said they should work to­gether on North Korea. Abe said he would be vis­it­ing the United States for talks with Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump to seek the “com­plete and ir­re­versible de­nu­cle­ariza­tion” of North Korea and added “we want to co-op­er­ate with China.” “We hope to de­velop a strate­gic, mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial Japan-China re­la­tion­ship in var­i­ous fields,” said Abe. —AFP
