Abe Pins High Hopes on Xi's Japan Visit Next Spring

Abe Pins High Hopes on Xi's Japan Visit Next Spring

   Beijing, Oct. 4 (Jiji Press)--Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has expressed high hopes for a visit to the country by Chinese President Xi Jinping possibly next spring, in an interview with China Central Television.
   All Japanese people look forward to the Chinese leader's visit to Japan, Abe said in the interview, which was broadcast by CCTV on Thursday, while congratulating China on the 70th anniversary of its founding.
   Abe said he hopes that Xi's envisaged visit as a state guest will mark the start of a new Japan-China relationship in Japan's new era of Reiwa, which began on May 1 this year, in line with Japanese Emperor Naruhito's accession to the Imperial throne on the day. The interview took place at the prime minister's office in Tokyo on Wednesday.
   Noting that China is the biggest trading partner for Japan, Abe said that the bilateral ties are becoming stronger thanks to deepening mutual understanding between people of the two countries.
   The Japanese and Chinese economies are now closely interconnected, and the two countries are mutually dependant, he said.
