   Home-Specials-60th Anniversary of War Against Japanese Aggression-Sino-Japan Relationship
China urges "political will" from Japan
Latest Updated by 2005-11-02 10:32:36

China urged Japan to show its "political will" for improving and developing Sino-Japanese ties, according to a foreign ministry spokesman Tuesday in Beijing.

The key to the return of Sino-Japanese ties back to normal track should not lie in "lip words" but on "actual deeds," the spokesman Kong Quan told a regular conference.

Responsibility for the difficulties emerging on Sino-Japanese relations does not rest with the Chinese side, he said.

Kong made the remarks in response to a question on the recent Japanese cabinet reshuffle, through which Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi replaced most of the 17 ministers.

"We have noticed the happening," Kong said.

China has already advocated improving and developing Sino-Japanese ties on the principled basis set forth in the three important political documents signed between the two nations and in line with "taking history as a mirror and looking forward to the future," he reiterated.

Under no circumstance will China alter such a basic policy, he said.

Koizumi's last term as the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) expires next September. He has dismissed the possibility of serving a new term as the party's president as well as the prime minister.

The recent reshuffle was regarded as a move through which Koizumi intends to have his policies carried through smoothly after his stepping down.

At the press conference to announce the new cabinet, Shinzo Abe, the new chief cabinet secretary, assumed a hard attitude toward Japan's foreign policy, saying he will continue to visit the war criminal-related Yasukuni Shrine and stick to the strategy of pressure and dialogue in the relationship with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

The visits to the shrine by senior Japanese officials, with the most recent one paid by Koizumi himself, have time and again triggered protest from neighboring countries, especially China and the Republic of Korea.
