BEIJING -- Visiting Secretary General of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP)
of Japan Hidenao Nakagawa said in Beijing Friday that China is not a
threat to Japan.
"China, which is seeking to build a harmonious society and become an economy
power, is not a threat to Japan, and Japan, which is striving to become a
political power, also poses no threat to China," said Nakagawa in a meeting with
Chinese President Hu Jintao.
Nakagawa and Kazuo Kitagawa, secretary general of the ruling coalition
partner New Komeito arrived here Thursday for a five-day visit to China, to
prepare for the upcoming visit by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao in April.
