Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan and Japanese Foreign Minister Hirofumi Nakasone announced that the two countries reached an accord to strengthen economic ties, AP reported. The officials said they had reached agreeements in a variety of areas, including intellectual property rights, trade, climate change and energy conservation.

However, the talks did not include discussions on sensitive issues such as Japan’s and China’s competing claims to gas reserves in the East China Sea.
