Japan-China summit at APEC

Following the incident involving a Chinese submarine’s intrusion into Japanese waters, the Asahi Shimbun has written an editorial calling on Prime Minister Koizumi to meet with President Hu during the APEC meetings in Santiago, Chile: “If is to expand its economic relationship with China in a stable manner, exchanges of views at summit talks are indispensable. Nations of Southeast Asia are watching intently how China- cooperation will play out, including how they intend to forge an East Asian economic community. And with the North Korean nuclear threat hanging over , communication with China is all the more vital for in steering the direction of six-party talks. ” The paper reported earlier that plans were being made for a China-Japan summit, but that a final decision had not been made. The two leaders have not made a mutual visit in three years.

Meanwhile, because of pressure from the Chinese, organizers have decided not to play a video promoting Taiwan, as it uses the term “nation,” according to Taiwan News.
