Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said that Japan and China are "inseparable" and urged Beijing to come to the table for "vital" summit talks as he sought to move on from comparisons he drew with World War I.

 

Abe told lawmakers he would not budge on the sovereignty of the Tokyo-administered islands that Beijing claims, but insisted the disagreement should not prevent a meeting between two closely-intertwined countries.

 

His comments came after he penned a Lunar New Year message for Chinese language magazines published in Japan, in which he wrote it was "vital that dialogues are conducted between the two countries at variety of levels, including at the summit level".
