In a landmark speech to the Diet on Thursday, visiting Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao recognized Japan’s apologies for its aggression in Asia and called on the people of both nations to reconcile and cooperate in the future.
In the first speech ever given by a Chinese premier to the Diet, Wen emphasized the economic interdependency of the countries, saying Japan and China are “mutually complementary” to each other and to a significant extent.
The historic, 35-minute speech was televised live in both Japan and China, giving Wen an opportunity to make his appeal for a bilateral thaw to both peoples simultaneously.
