Japan must face up to relations with China (2)

(People's Daily Online)

Secondly, Japan should properly handle the sensitive issues and seize the opportunity to show goodwill to China.

In 2012, Japan constantly plays dirty tricks on issues related to Xinjiang and Tibet. Therefore, new Japanese leaders should be highly cautious of these issues involving China's core interests.

Japan should realize that the Diaoyu Islands issue cannot be solved in a short period of time and the side which breaks the status quo must take initiative to break the deadlock and show goodwill, which is the requirement of the times.

Thirdly, Japan should actively promote sincere dialogues with China and promote the development of the public diplomacy and people-to-people diplomacy between two countries.

The improvement of China-Japan relations relies on the efforts of both sides and Japan's efforts containing the rise of China with the help of third party will deepen mutual strategic suspicion. The third party is warmly welcomed to play a constructive role in the improvement of China-Japan relations, but serving as a man-in-middle to interfere in bilateral relations is not allowed.

The non-governmental friendship between China and Japan is the basis to restore their relations and an important issue is how to explore the potential of public diplomacy and people-to-people diplomacy.

In the next 10 years, China will be more open, confident and tolerant to take the road of peaceful development in foreign affairs. Both China and Japan should consider the long-term interests and establish new relationship with neighboring powers through sincere dialogues, which is not only the essential requirement of China's peaceful development but also the common expectation of the region and the world to the new leaders of both sides.
