Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with his Japanese counterpart Toshimitsu Motegi in Tokyo on Tuesday to discuss ways to revive their pandemic-hit economies and climate change among other challenges that the region is facing. Wang expressed China's willingness to build a solid Sino-Japanese relationship.
Wang and Motegi were expected to discuss resuming business trips between the world's second and third largest economies amid the coronavirus pandemic through a "business track" programme that would allow visitors to engage in limited business activity during 14-day quarantine periods. Wang's visit comes as Japan is grappling with a resurgence of virus infections and the government struggles to balance disease prevention and the economy.
