Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao met Tuesday with former Japanese prime minister Yukio Hatoyama, exchanging views on China-Japan ties and bilateral cooperation in environmental protection.
Wen reviewed his visit to Japan in May this year, hoping that the two nations would work together to fulfill important consensuses reached during that visit to enhance political mutual trust and win-win cooperation.
Hatoyama was here on a visit to China as head of a lawmakers' delegation of Democratic Party of Japan.
Wen also hoped the Japanese lawmakers would contribute to promoting China-Japan strategic and mutually beneficial relations and safeguarding Asian peace and prosperity.
The Japanese delegation visited Caofeidian, in north China's Hebei province, where China proposed to build a recycling economic zone.
The premier said China was dedicated to the policy of opening-up and welcomed Japan to expand trade and investment in China.【1】 【2】 http://paper.people.com.cn/rmrb/html/2010-08/18/nw.D110000renmrb_20100818_5-01.htm?div=-1
