Japan, China Mulling Foreign Ministers' Meeting

Japan, China Mulling Foreign Ministers' Meeting

   Tokyo, Aug. 2 (Jiji Press)--Japan and China are working to arrange a meeting of their foreign ministers, Japanese government officials said Tuesday.
   The planned meeting is expected to take place on the sidelines of a series of foreign ministers' meetings related to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, to be held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, from Wednesday, according to the officials.
   The Japanese side aims to confirm the significance of communications with the Chinese side ahead of the 50th anniversary of the normalization of the two countries' diplomatic relations on Sept. 29, while showing its concerns over pending bilateral issues.
   In May, Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi and his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, held a teleconference.
   The last time Japanese and Chinese foreign ministers met in person was in November 2020. The planned meeting will be Hayashi's first in-person meeting with Wang since Hayashi took office in November last year.
