Abe, Li hail improved Japan-China ties, commit to do more

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe tumbled into a bunker while playing a round of golf with US President Donald Trump in Saitama earlier this week.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe held a meeting with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in Manila on Monday on the sidelines of a series of regional summits.

"On North Korea, we have agreed to implement United Nations sanctions strictly and to continue cooperating closely", Abe told reporters after meeting Putin on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Danang, Vietnam.

"While of course, we can not deny the existence of some sensitive factors.I think both sides must work hard together to make the momentum of improvement in China-Japan relations into something solid", Li told Abe at the outset of the talks, open to the press.

Japan hopes to increase high-level exchanges with China, carry out reciprocal economic and trade cooperation, and explore cooperation in connectivity and under the Belt and Road Initiative, he said.

"We've got the same values and the same focus", Turnbull said about the meeting with Trump and Abe, adding that the North Korean missile crisis dominated the conversation, according to the Australian.

This year marks the 45th anniversary of the normalization of China -Japan relations, and next year marks the 40th anniversary of the signing of the China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship.

While both sides have welcomed an improvement in bilateral ties, Japan must reconcile the benefits of the thaw with lingering concern about China's rising influence coming to dominate the region. He also proposed that Japan and China cooperate in doing business in third countries.

At the outset of the talks, Abe said Japan will provide around 55 billion yen ($484 million) over the next three years to strengthen maritime law enforcement capabilities in ASEAN.

China's statement about the meeting, released by the official Xinhua news agency, cited Xi as telling Abe that stable relations were in both sides' interests, and that they must make unremitting efforts to continue improving ties.
