China and Japan on Thursday kicked off a joint exhibition of Chinese and Japanese movies, cartoons and soap operas to promote mutual understanding and bilateral relations.

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and former Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso presented at the opening ceremony of the event at the National Museum of China in downtown Beijing.

Wen praised the Japanese for persevering in the wake of the devastating earthquake and tsunami to come for the exhibition, which he said demonstrated its sincerity and the importance it attached to the event.

Aso, as a special envoy of Prime Minister Naoto Kan, said the Japanese government and society support these types of cultural exchanges that can enhance mutual understanding and promote bilateral ties.

The exhibition, agreed during Wen's visit to Japan in 2010, will also be held in Shanghai later this month.
