TOKYO, Dec. 24 (Xinhua) -- Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda says deepening the Japan-China strategic and mutually beneficial relations is of great importance to the two countries.

Noda will pay an official visit to China from Sunday to Monday at the invitation of Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao.

In a written interview with Xinhua and other Chinese news media before his visit, Noda said it would be his first trip to China after taking office and he expected to build trustworthy personal relations with Chinese leaders.

The upcoming year marks the 40th anniversary of the normalization of Japan-China diplomatic relations. On this occasion, Noda said, he would frankly exchange views with Chinese leaders on cooperation and exchanges, and reach important consensus with the Chinese side on deepening the Japan-China strategic and mutually beneficial relations.

Noda said the Japan-China relationship had enjoyed rapid development since the normalization of bilateral relations, with bilateral trade increasing from 1.1 billion U.S. dollars to 300 billion dollars and people-to-people exchanges growing from 10,000 to 5.4 million.

Why do you worry about what kind of fighter planes Japan chooses to buy. Are you afraid that Japan might be able to defend itself and what country do you guess that they feel that they need protection from ?

Yes, good to be friendly neighbour and trade partners but Japan is acquiring F35 to strike and challenge who while maintaning US soldiers to the brink of foreign 50,000 combat guys. What is going on in Japan behind the real scenes?
