Japan and China have agreed to continue high-level talks on the economy, the environment and other global issues.
Japan’s Foreign Minister Taro Kono met with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in Beijing on Monday.
Li said their talks the previous night had produced practical results and helped move the relationship to a more normal track.
Kono said, “Japan and China can properly manage the various difficult issues that lie between us. We should stand shoulder to shoulder and make efforts to deal with global challenges, in addition to bilateral issues.”
