Chinese, Japanese FMs hold informal contact on ties

Bishkek (AKIpress) - handshake Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida held an informal contact late Saturday to exchange views on ways to improve China-Japan relations, Xinhua reports.

During their talks on the sidelines of the series of Foreign Ministers Meetings on East Asia cooperation, Wang clarified China's principles and stance in a serious manner, and demanded the Japanese side to make concrete efforts to remove the political barriers in the relations between the two countries.

The China-Japan relationship took a nosedive after the Japanese government's "purchase" of the Diaoyu Islands in September 2012 and further soured due to Tokyo's unrepentant attitude toward its wartime history.
