The leaders of China and Japan have met for formal talks after more than two years of severe tension over a territorial dispute.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese PM Shinzo Abe met on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation summit in Beijing.

Their first meeting included a public handshake with little sign of warmth.

In a speech to Apec, President Obama has meanwhile announced big changes to visa arrangements with China.

Multiple entry short-term visas for businessmen and tourists will be extended to 10 years - up from one year.

Those for students rise from one year to five.
