Chinese and Japanese leaders on Wednesday in Tokyo reached consensus on building a strategic, mutually beneficial relationship.

A joint press communique issued after talks between visiting Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe said the two countries shoulder the solemn responsibility to make constructive contributions to peace, stability and development in Asia and the whole world.

On the basis of this understanding, China and Japan will be engaged in mutually beneficial cooperation in an all-round way at bilateral, regional as well as international levels, in joint efforts to make contributions to their own countries, the whole of Asia and the world at large. In doing so, the two countries will gain mutual benefit and expand their common interests so as to push the development of their bilateral relationship to a new height, it said.

As for the main content of the strategic, mutually beneficial relationship, the communique said China and Japan should support each other's peaceful development, enhance political mutual trust and increase the exchange of high-level visits.

The communique also called for enhanced defense dialogues and personnel and cultural exchanges.

The relationship also involves a wide range of cooperation in such fields as energy, environmental protection, financing and intellectual property rights.

The two sides also agreed that the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula should be resolved peacefully through dialogue and said the Association of Southeast Asian Nations could play an important role in regional cooperation in East Asia, on the basis of the principles of openness, transparency and tolerance.

Premier Wen arrived here on Wednesday for a three-day official visit.
