Xi reviewed the history of normalization of China-Japan relations, and hailed the "great sense of historical responsibility and courage" of the older generations of Chinese and Japanese statesmen to make the strategic decision 40 years ago.

The two countries, facing the 40th anniversary of normalization of ties this year, should continue to create a sound environment for healthy and stable development of bilateral ties with joint efforts, Xi said.

He also called on businessmen of the two countries to continue to contribute to the mutual understanding of the two peoples and comprehensive development of the China-Japan strategic relationship of reciprocity.

The delegation is in Beijing at the invitation of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade.
