The Foreign Minister of China has warned Japan (Japan) to increase relations with the US to confront China before the US-Japan summit next week. According to the statement of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi called his Japanese counterpart on Monday evening to ensure that the two countries ensure that bilateral relations do not get involved in the so-called confrontation between the major countries.
The ministry quoted Wang as saying that it is expected that Japan, being an independent country, would see its development as neutral and fair rather than being misled by some of the countries with a biased attitude against China. Explain that Japan is a close friend of the US and supports US concerns over China’s military dominance and claims in the South and the East China Sea and has allowed US naval bases and air force bases to operate from its territory. .
PM of Japan to visit America on April 16
He has been the victim of criticism of his biggest neighbour for stopping many of his big business and investment interests in China. Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga will travel to Washington on April 16 to meet US President Joe Biden. This will be Suga’s first meeting with Biden since he was sworn in as President in January.
In contrast to former President Donald Trump, Biden has insisted on improving relations with European and Asian allies as part of US preparedness to compete with China. Japan’s Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi has raised the issue of human rights violations in China’s Xinjiang region and Hong Kong, and these issues are important to Biden.
China expresses opposition
He reiterated his opposition to China’s claims and presence on Japan-controlled islands in the East China Sea. According to China’s statement, Wang opposed the intervention of Japan, claiming Xinjiang and Hong Kong as China’s internal matter. Suga said earlier this week that Taiwan is also a potential issue on which Japan will support the US. China calls this autonomous island its province. China recently indicated to the US and its allies by sending some of its aircraft to the maritime area near Taiwan for training exercises.
