Topic: Japan, China leaders set to meet at summit, MPs visit controversial shrine


Final arrangements are being made for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of an Asia-Africa summit in Indonesia on Wednesday, NHK public TV reported, in the latest sign of a thaw in troubled ties. Relations between the world's second and third biggest economies have chilled in recent years due to feuds over Japan's war-time past, bitter memories of which linger in China, as well as territorial rows and regional rivalry. Such a dilution would not sit well with China, Japan's war-time enemy and main regional rival. Xi is attending the same summit in Jakarta and Abe has made it clear he wants to meet the Chinese leader in the Indonesian capital.
