He expressed the hope that Nikai, who has witnessed twists and turns in the bilateral relationship, could, together with friendly Japanese people, continue to promote non-governmental exchanges between the two countries to make new contributions to the development of bilateral relations.
Nikai, for his part, said that China-Japan relationship is vital to Japan's future development and the two countries should enhance people-to-people exchanges as well as exchanges between political parties and the young people to promote bilateral ties.
In his meeting with Kono, Wang said that people of vision in the two countries should, based on a sense of historical mission, consolidate political basis of bilateral relations and realize benign interaction between the two countries and pass on friendly relationship to future generations.
Kono said that the two countries should maintain friendly traditions and make wise decisions in accordance with long-term interests of the two peoples, adding that Japan should actively respond to China's Belt and Road Initiative, which is beneficial not only to Japan, but also to neighboring countries.
In his meeting with Kukuda, Wang said that China-Japan relations are currently faced with both challenges and opportunities. The two sides should abide by the principles defined in the four political documents and implement the four-point principled agreement to make differences controllable and to strengthen cooperation in various areas to enhance bilateral relations.
He expressed the hope that the Japanese people could view China's development from a proper perspective, make use of the opportunities provided by China's development and continue to promote bilateral ties.
Fukuda said that Japan and China, as the third and second largest economy in the world, respectively, play significant roles in the world. Promoting bilateral ties is not only in the interests of the two countries, but also the common expectation of regional countries.
He hoped that the two sides could continue to enhance dialogue and communication, properly handle disputes, expand practical cooperation and bring benefits to the peoples of the two countries.
