Emperor meets with Chinese Premier Li in Tokyo

Moon Support from China Japan Essential on Road to Peace on Peninsula

He is also the first Chinese leader to visit the country in 8 years.

Shanxi Finance University expert Li Kai pointed out that in terms of economic scale, the proposed China-Japan-South Korea free trade zone can be compared to such major economic integration zones as the European Union or the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

The China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship, which includes Japan's self-reflection on aggression against China and its one-China stance, is one of the four political documents both countries should fully comply with to bring bilateral ties back to the right track, Premier Li Keqiang said on Thursday.

Sun Cheng, a Japanese affairs expert at the China University of Political Science and Law, said while Li's visit was a good sign for bilateral ties, suspicions ran deep between the two sides.

Over the past 40 years, China-Japan relations have achieved remarkable progress under the guidance of the spirit and principles of the treaty, Li said at the reception, which was also attended by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and some 1,400 representatives from all walks of life from China and Japan. He said he hoped bilateral ties improve.

For his part, Abe hailed Li's remarks at their meeting on Wednesday that bilateral relations are setting sail again and will sail further.

"But cooperating under the belt and road plan will be good for Japan too, because it's an opportunity for Japan to reach broader markets through this New Silk Road".

China is to also donate a pair of crested ibises, which were once extinct in Japan.

The state visit implies a thaw in the long-standing hostile relations between the two countries, which ensued from territorial disputes over East China Sea islands and grievances from World War II.

Li told the emperor that the latter's interaction with the people in China has left an "impression" and is "symbolic" of the friendship between their countries.

Abe and Li on Friday attended a forum created to promote exchanges between Japanese and Chinese local authorities.

"Cooperation will be good for both China and Japan, as long as it's honest".
