Wang Yi: Like Sailing Against the Current, China-Japan relations will Either Forge ahead or Fall Behind

On August 24, 2016, after meeting with Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida of Japan in Tokyo, Foreign Minister Wang Yi expressed at inquiry to the press that at present, China-Japan relations are still facing difficulties. At this important juncture where both opportunities and challenges exist, bilateral relations, like sailing against the current, will either forge ahead or fall behind. China is willing to work with Japan to adhere to the four-point principled consensus, properly control differences and contradiction, and maintain the momentum of improving bilateral relations in the spirit of "facing history squarely and advancing towards the future", so as to create necessary conditions for the 45th anniversary of the normalization of China-Japan diplomatic relations next year. It is hoped that Japan can meet China halfway, and make wise and right choices to this end.
