China and Japan agree to set up hotline to prevent military clashes

The Japanese attendees briefly reviewed the history of the signing of the Japan-China Treaty of Peace and Friendship, voicing full agreement with Premier Li's remarks.

Both Moon and Li are in Tokyo for a trilateral summit with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who also agreed that South Korea and China could start joint research on how they could connect the two countries through North Korea.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang meets with Toshihiro Nikai, secretary general of Japan's ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), and Natsuo Yamaguchi, head of Komeito party, LDP's ruling coalition partner in Tokyo, Japan, on May 10, 2018.

But signs of warming ties emerged late a year ago, when Abe attended a celebration marking China's National Day at its embassy in Tokyo, and expressed interest in joining Beijing's "Belt and Road Initiative" spanning Asia, Europe and Africa. "Our "One Belt, One Road" initiative will be coordinated with Japan's growth strategy", Li said in a speech in Tokyo at a reception celebrating the 40th anniversary of the signing of a bilateral friendship treaty. South Korean officials say they also want to offer North Korea some sort of security guarantees.

China and Japan vowed to reset bilateral ties and agreed to set up a hotline to prevent military clashes at sea and in the air, as well as cooperate on infrastructure projects during top-level talks on Wednesday. The Japanese minister said in response that the two countries would exchange more opinions for closer economic ties.

Li also referenced US President Donald Trump's recent protectionist rhetoric towards China, saying "we are all beneficiaries of free trade and even though various issues have emerged, these should not stand in the way..." He said that, starting today, bilateral relations have entered the era of coordination.

The progress made by China is worth learning from, said Kono, adding that China and Japan should learn from each other to achieve common prosperity and make joint contribution to the development of the world.
