|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hong Lei's Remarks on Conversation Between Premier Li Keqiang and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Kuala Lumpur|
Q: It is reported that Premier Li Keqiang and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had a brief conversation on the sidelines of the East Asia Summit. Can you confirm that and give us more details?
A: On the fringes of the leaders' meetings on East Asia cooperation in Kuala Lumpur, Premier Li and Prime Minister Abe had a brief conversation.
Li Keqiang said that China-Japan relationship has been improving lately which serves the interests of people from the two countries. However, the momentum of improvement is still weak and can only sustain if the Japanese side makes good on its promises with concrete actions. What the Japanese side says and does should be more conducive to mutual understanding and relationship between the two countries, so as not to impede the improvement and development of China-Japan relations.
