Japan PM Shinzo Abe reaches China

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has reached China today. It is the first visit to China by a Japanese prime minister, since relations between the two countries soured six years ago over a territorial row.

 
Mr Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping are expected to discuss ways to improve economic cooperation between the two countries. The meeting assumes significance as the world's second and third largest economies prepare to whether a US onslaught of trade measures.

Japanese business is eager for increased access to China's massive market, while Beijing is interested in Japanese technology and corporate know-how. The visit is the first by a Japanese premier since 2011 and is part of a years-long process of repairing relations in the wake of a disastrous falling-out in 2012, when Tokyo nationalised disputed islands claimed by Beijing.

The incident prompted anti-Japanese riots in China, and kicked off a frosty spell that has only recently begun to thaw.

During Mr Abe's visit, the leaders will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the signing of a treaty between the two countries that was intended to set the tone for their relations following the World War II.
