Abstract

Japan’s Prime Minister Abe Shinzō is about to pay his first official state visit to China, including a call on President Xi Jinping. It will be the first Japanese state visit in seven years. The visit comes on the back of China’s Premier Li Keqiang being the first Chinese leader to pay an official state visit to Japan in eight years. China’s official media have quoted Xi calling it a return to a ‘normal path’ and ‘an important opportunity for improvement’. But is it? And what will come next? What does this mean for the region?
