The two sides agreed to implement the important consensus reached by Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of a summit of the Group of 20 (G20) major economies in Japan’s Osaka in late June.

Both countries also agreed to work together to promote China-Japan relations in light of a new era of development.

The two sides exchanged views on bilateral ties and international and regional issues of common concern.

Le also met with Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono Friday in Tokyo, saying that the relationship between China and Japan has been improving.

Kono said Japan is looking forward to President Xi’s state visit in spring next year and will work with China to ensure a successful visit.

Launched in May 2005, the China-Japan strategic dialogue is an important channel for the two governments to strengthen strategic communication. The 14th round of the dialogue is the first of its kind since June 2012.
