中日 외교장관 회담, 북제재 결의이행 일치
After years of frosty ties,... China and Japan are trying to make amends.
The two sides have agreed to push for a three-way summit with South Korea as the simmering tension with North Korea persists.
Beijing's top diplomat says China recognizes Japan has made efforts to turn over a new leaf... and his country will do the same.
Park Soyun reports.
In a rare move,... China and Japan have decided to put their differences aside,... and get on with handling issues surrounding the region,... especially those stemming from North Korea.
In a meeting between Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Japanese counterpart Taro Kono in Beijing over the weekend,.. the two sides agreed to push for a trilateral summit with South Korea,... and to resume reciprocal visits.

"North Korea is now an urgent issue for the international community as a whole. I hope to deepen our bilateral coordination on certain issues... and hopefully resolve them as well."

Appearing to be on the same page,... the diplomats emphasized the need to ramp up pressure on North Korea over its nuclear development and they confirmed their respective wills to fully implement UN Security Council resolutions on the regime.
The two also saw eye-to-eye on the need for a trilateral summit with Seoul, Beijing and Tokyo,... tentatively looking at some time in April.
On the issue of their bilateral ties,... the two diplomats agreed to resume reciprocal visits by their leaders,... underscoring that Asia's two largest economies are eager to mend ties in the year marking their 40th anniversary of bilateral ties.
Relations between China and Japan have long been tense-- over historical issues and their territorial dispute over the uninhabited Diaoyu islands, known as the Senkakus in Japan-- in the East China Sea.
The islands are controlled by Tokyo,.. but also claimed by Beijing,... and military tensions often flare up in the area.
