Raymond Bonner and Norimitsu Onishi : Japan and China pledge better ties

From The International Herald Tribune:

The leaders of and China have pledged to improve ties after weeks of escalating disputes, easing tension but not resolving some critical problems besieging relations between East Asia’s big powers.

After a 55-minute meeting Saturday on the sidelines of an Asia-Africa summit conference here, Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi of Japan said both sides had agreed to look beyond disagreements and focus on the future.

But speaking at a separate news conference, China’s top leader, Hu Jintao, sounded less optimistic, saying that Japan needed to reflect on its past and warning Tokyo not to meddle in its internal affairs by supporting Taiwan.
