Japanese academic claims Abe government snubbed President Xi’s East China Sea peace offer

Amid reports of Chinese foreign minister seeking to meet Japan’s new Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, a Japanese academician has claimed that the government rejected an offer from China to reduce tensions in the disputed East China Sea.

Japan has been concerned over Chinese naval activities in the East China Sea. Professor Liu Qingbin from Yokohama National University in Japan told a newspaper that China had almost completely stopped activities in the East China Sea ahead of President Xi’s visit in April but it could not take place due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Suga had earlier held a telephonic conversation with President Xi as the Japanese prime minister stressed on the importance of stable Japan-China ties.
