On August 24, 2016, Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with Secretary General of the Liberal Democratic Party Toshihiro Nikai of Japan in Tokyo, Japan.

Wang Yi said that at this crucial juncture where China-Japan relations will either forge ahead or be driven behind, the two sides should earnestly abide by the four political documents, consolidate the political foundation of bilateral relations, implement the four-point principled consensus and properly manage and control existing differences so as to create necessary conditions for the 45th anniversary of the normalization of relations between China and Japan and the 40th anniversary of the signing of China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship on this basis.

Wang Yi noted that Mr. Toshihiro Nikai has experienced the tortuous process of the evolution and development of China-Japan relations. It is hoped that you can work together with friendly personages from all circles of Japan to inherit China-Japan traditional friendship, reinitiate the three engines of non-governmental exchanges, local exchanges and exchanges between political parties, constantly pool positive energy for bilateral friendship and eliminate interferences from various aspects in order to make new contributions to the healthy and stable development of China-Japan relations.

Toshihiro Nikai fully agreed with Wang Yi's opinion. He expressed that he led 3,000 people from all walks of life of Japan to visit China last year, and they were warmly greeted by President Xi Jinping. President Xi Jinping's speech then aroused strong and positive response from the two peoples. Japan-China relations are extremely important to the future development of Japan and both sides should strengthen exchanges between non-governmental organizations, political parties, sister cities and youths, as well as in tourism and other fields, send out the positive message of friendly cooperation between both countries to the two peoples and firmly advance the improvement and development of bilateral relations.

Both sides also exchanged views on relevant issues of bilateral relations.
