Great initiative by Japan !!
it is in interest of both the countries to get closer, when there is a common reason and cause to balance power in Asia, when China is getting more and more intrusive in other countries’ land and sea.

How about “Tiananmen square” and killings and abductions by Chinese government of its own citizens even today?? Will even recognize that.
Chinese government has wiped out all the races in China except “Han”. Chinaese government has removed all this from the history and instead being thankful to the Japan for their economic development, bullying all its neighboring countries.

Great to see finally some strong leadership in Japan after a while. There is a need for strong leadership in Asia and I hope Abe and Aso government alongwith other Asian contries can provide some leadership.
Who dropped the bombs and where, what Britishers did, what Germans did, what French did decades ago is not so important. Present is more important than History. And the present situation is China is trying to get into other`s territories which needs to be controlled by the International community.

I think our focus should be on Current and not on History. Current problem is frequent incursions of China and muscle flexing. China is forgetting that its growth is coming from the same countries, it has been troubling. It is high time for China to create the problems in Asia and taking the protection that we were exploited before the world war 2. History cannot be a shield for your misdeeds and incursions in others territories. Asian countries including Taiwan, Philippines, Vietnam should get together to contain the Chinese incursions in others land.

There is no doubt that China has been troubling many neighboring countries like Japan, India, Taiwan, Philippines, and Vietnam etc. Everybody knows, China is also creating the negativity and hatred in the countries like North Korea and Pakistan for the other neighboring countries for its own benefit. Chinese actions are hard to believe. It is important to monitor the actions of China and control its incursions in other neighboring countries. They have temporarily backed out from their recent 19 Km incursion in India after some open comments but from now on it is very important to collectively monitor Chinese incursions in its neighboring countries and take collective action for the sake of peace in Asia.

theResident: Just another small point, it's the BOJ that intervenes. It's MOF. 財務省は３０日、８月３０日から９月２８日までの為替介入額が２兆８３８２億円だった、と発表した。介入額は２２日に実施したドル売り／円買いとみられ、円買い介入としては１９９８年４月１０日の２兆６２０１億円を超える規模となった。近く公表される外貨準備高は２カ月連続で減少する公算が高まった。 為替介入額となる約２．８兆円は、換金流動性の高い「外国中央銀行および国際決済銀行（ＢＩＳ）」への預金取り崩しだったとみられ、外国為替資金特別会計（外為特会）が保有する外貨準備はその分減少する。 https://jp.reuters.com/article/jp-fx-intervention-idJPKBN2QV02M
