Suga: Japan, China to work on regional stability

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced on Friday he and Chinese President Xi Jinping had agreed to strengthen the cooperation between Tokyo and Beijing and work together on regional stability.

"Stable relations are important not just for our countries but for the region and the international community. I want to fulfill that responsibility," he said.

Shortly after Suga was named the new Prime Minister of Japan, China expressed its hopes Tokyo would refrain from developing diplomatic relations with Taiwan. The island's President Tsai Ing-wen later revealed she had no scheduled talks with Suga.
