BEIJING, November 7. /TASS/. China and Japan agreed to resume political and diplomatic dialogue. The decision was reached at a meeting between member of the Chinese State Council Yang Jiechi and head of the Japanese National Security Council Shotaro Yachi in the Chinese capital on Friday, Chinese Foreign Ministry reported.
The two countries “agreed to use multilateral and bilateral channels for gradual resumption of political and diplomatic dialogue, dialogue on security issues and to take effort to build up mutual political trust,” the ministry said.
They also confirmed plans “to continue development of Chinese-Japanese strategic mutually beneficial relations” based on respect “to the principles and spirit of four political documents” which China and Japan had signed earlier.
The two countries came to agreement on the issue of “overcoming political obstacles which influence bilateral relations.”
“Both sides admit their different positions over a tense situation which had emerged in the East China Sea, including over Diaoyu Dao Islands, in the last few years and agreed to stop the situation from deteriorating through dialogue and consultations, create a mechanism of anti-crisis management to avert unpredicted complications of the situation,” Chinese Foreign Ministry said.
