Global Times: Xi Jinping Chatted with Shinzo Abe at G20

Global Times recently reported that Chinese President Xi Jinping had a “quick chat” with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the VIP Lounge before the G20 summit started. Xi explained the Chinese principles on the relationship with Japan and pointed out that the relationship is currently suffering “serious difficulties.” Xi said he did not want to see this happening and that China is willing to push the strategic relationship forward based on the original four political documents signed at the time the formal China-Japan relationship was established. Abe said that he was very hopeful seeing President Xi at the G20 and that Japan was eager to improve the relationship between the two countries.
