Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie and Chief of Staff of Maritime Self-Defense Force (MSDF) of Japan Keiji Akahoshi met Tuesday and vowed to enhance bilateral defense cooperation.

Liang said both nations had reinforced cooperation in jointly coping with the financial crisis and deepening the strategic and mutually beneficial relations between the two countries.

Liang said the bilateral defense exchanges had made positive progress, marked by the first mutual visit of naval ships and the increasing personnel exchanges between the two defense departments.

"China is ready to work with Japan to increase defense mutual trust, promote China-Japan friendship and maintain the security and stability of the region," Liang said.

Akahoshi said Japan and China were both countries of significant influence and had important responsibilities for the peace and stability of the region and the world.

Japan hoped to further enhance exchanges and cooperation with China in the field of defense and security, said Akahoshi.

This is Akahoshi's first China visit since he was appointed MSDF chief March 2008.
