BEIJING, Dec. 25 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao and visiting Japanese Prime Minster Yoshihiko Noda held talks Sunday afternoon on China-Japan ties and Korean peninsula situation at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

China and Japan should be good neighbors and partners rather than opponents, Wen stressed.

Wen said that peaceful coexistence, long-term friendship from generation to generation, mutually beneficial cooperation and common development between China and Japan are in line with the fundamental interests of both sides and their peoples and also beneficial to the peace, stability and prosperity of Asia and the whole world, since the two countries are close neighbors separated only by a strip of water.

The four political documents of China and Japan are the overall conclusion of the historical experience and lessons, Wen said, adding that each principle should be abided by while the problems and divergences should be properly resolved.

Wen urged that a stable, healthy and long-term Sino-Japan relationship should be guaranteed.

Wen said China and Japan are preparing for the 40th anniversary of the normalization of bilateral diplomatic relations scheduled for 2012. The two countries have achieved abundant fruits in exchanges and cooperation with the improvement of bilateral ties, he said.
