BEIJING, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- Chinese State Councilor Dai Bingguo met here on Friday with Japanese Vice Foreign Minister Tsuyoshi Yamaguchi to discuss bilateral ties.

Yamaguchi, who has been in China since Tuesday for a four-day working visit to meet with Chinese officials, handed Dai a letter that Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda had written to Chinese President Hu Jintao.

On Thursday, Yamaguchi met with his Chinese counterpart, Fu Ying. The two exchanged ideas on bilateral relations and the situation concerning China and Japan's ongoing disputes over the Diaoyu Islands.

According to a press release from the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Fu said during the meeting that China and Japan are important neighbors; therefore, friendly cooperation is the basic direction of bilateral ties.

Under current circumstances, the two sides should make efforts to enhance political mutual trust, properly controlling the situation so as to jointly promote the healthy and stable development of bilateral ties, said Fu.
