|Hu Jintao Has Breakfast with Former Japanese Prime Ministers Yasuhiro Nakasone, Toshiki Kaifu, Yoshiro Mori and Shinzo Abe|
On May 8, 2008, visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao met at the hotel where he stayed in Tokyo with former Japanese prime ministers Yasuhiro Nakasone, Toshiki Kaifu, Yoshiro Mori and Shinzo Abe and held friendly talks with them.
Hu pointed out that the China-Japan relationship is one of the most important bilateral relations for both countries. Against the backdrop of deepening economic globalization and accelerating Asian integration, China and Japan, as important countries in the region and the world at large, are facing more common issues and responsibilities, and are sharing more common interests and larger room for development, Hu said. The China-Japan relations have exceeded the bilateral domain and are exerting stronger regional and global influence.
