The positioning of the comprehensively advancing strategic and mutually beneficial relationship was reaffirmed in the Thursday meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, and a mutual understanding was sought in order to pave the way for a new era in Sino-Japanese relations, according to Japanese media.

"Additionally, it is reported that both sides acknowledged the differences in their positions on issues of common concern. Through dialogue, they aim to find solutions to these issues. These developments are seen as positive and welcomed by Japan's business community," said Takeo Donoue, executive managing director of the Japan-China Economic Association.

"The exchange between the top leaders has been a sought-after initiative, and there is an expectation that it will have a positive impact on bilateral relations, including economic exchanges," Donoue said.

During their meeting in San Francisco, the two leaders reiterated their commitment to the principles and consensus stipulated in the four political documents between the two countries, and agreed to dedicate themselves to jointly building a constructive and stable China-Japan relationship that can meet the demands of the new era, Xinhua News Agency reported.
