Chinese foreign minister Yang to visit Japan

Wednesday 18th November, 12:12 AM JST


Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi will visit Japan from Thursday to Sunday, his first visit to Japan since the country saw a historic change of government in September, Japanese Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada said Tuesday.

The Chinese minister’s visit, during which he will meet with Okada on Thursday, is apparently intended to lay the groundwork for an early visit to Japan by Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping, who is seen as a leading candidate to succeed Chinese President Hu Jintao.
