Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping are to hold their first summit next week, after presiding over two years of animosity between Asia's two biggest economies.

Tokyo has long been pressing for such a meeting but Beijing has resisted, with the two sides locked in a territorial dispute and still at odds over World War 2 history.

As a condition for the meet, China, which has painted Abe as a dangerous revisionist, had reportedly been demanding that he swear not to repeat a visit to a Tokyo shrine that honours fallen soldiers, including a number of war criminals.
